Currently wearing a mask while in the center is required. We have, over this past year, increased our programs and resumed many activities and services. Our highest priority is to keep everyone safe. It’s been wonderful to welcome more back to the Center each month. It’s nice to see the smiles, hear people greet each other, exchange news, laugh, share a lunch together, have Wednesday Night Happy Hour, Dinner and Bingo, see the classes and groups resume, watch folks get on with their exercise routines, balance, enhance fitness, yoga, walking  and continue our opening plan as we learn and grow together.

Some guidelines for All to observe:

  • Entrance is through the main front door.
  • Masks will continue to be required for all unless you are eating or drinking in the dining room.
  • Some distancing requirements will still be in place and maximum capacities for classes and activities are being observed. Check with the Center for details at (206) 297-0403.
  • Inside Community Dining is capped at 30 per day on a first come first served basis. Take-out/pick up at the door and delivery continue as usual. All three have the same menu.
