Although the Senior Center remains closed, staff is eager to help so please contact the main office phone or email us if you have any questions or concerns. We encourage you to sign up for one or more of our free programs. These activities will help keep you connected with center friends and staff, as we often reserve the first few minutes before a program starts to say hello and “check-in.”
