Activities and membership
Along with the meal program, seniors meet Tuesday
through Friday from 9:00
a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to work
jigsaw puzzles and visit
before lunch and enjoy
Nickel Bingo for approximately one hour following
Also, individuals who eat
with the group at least once
a week are eligible to go on
various outings throughout
the year.
To become a member, an
individual is required to eat at
the Center at least one day a
week. The Seniors invite
anyone who is 60 years or
older or with a spouse at least
60 to come down and be a
part of our group.
The goal of the Senior
Center is to provide activities
of interest for improving both
mind and body. No senior
should be home alone when
the Center provides one good
meal a day, time to have fun
and a chance to visit with
their peers.
We are currently planning
a trip to Bravo Farms in
Kettleman City.
Library and jigsaw puzzles
- not just for Seniors
If you haven't visited the
Senior Center, you might be
surprised at the number of
books we have in our library.
Please feel free to come by
and help yourself to some
great reading material. Public
members are also invited to
partake of this library.
The Center also has a large
collection of jigsaw puzzles
that members are willing to
trade to those who are interested. Come by and check
out our collection.
Hours for Fitness Room
The fitness room at the
Senior Center is open for
public use from 9:00 a.m. to
1:30 p.m. Tuesday through
Friday. The closure at 1:30
is to allow time for staff and
volunteers to put things
away and clean up in order
to vacate the building by
2:00 p.m. We will also be
limiting the number of individuals in the room at any
one time to allow all the use
of the equipment.
Young children are not
allowed in the fitness room.
This is for their safety.
