Because of the new outbreaks and continuing occurrences of Covid-19 cases, the Parks and Recreation Department has decided that the Senior Center will continue with limited accessibility for at least the beginning of the Fall Season. We will be open for a selected few, in-person programs where pre-registration is required.

During this time, the Senior Center will not be open for indoor lunch service, drop-in programs or casual seating in the lobby until it is deemed safe by the County Health Department. Masks are required when inside the facility.
