The Senior Community Center, located off Dickinson Street inside the Washington Center, is closed due to COVID 19. We hope to open again in early 2021. (Above program is exception)
Typically the center holds a variety of programs geared for adults ages 60 and older. We are always looking for new ways to expand our horizons, and welcome your input and volunteerism! We are open weekdays, and rent the center on weeknights and weekends. Rentals are open now, we ask that no more than 40 people gather, and use Covid safety guidelines provided. Go to our rental page for more information.
Once we re-open, here is our WEEKLY PROGRAMMING (we need you to wear masks and social distance until further notice):
Seasonal craft projects and special programs on the 1st and 3rd Monday of the month at 1pm. Do you have an idea to share? Please let us know.

Traveling Dartball League has been cancelled for the year. We'll practice here at 12:30 through the winter, and also offer Corn Hole (bean bags) and Ping Pong to attendees at no charge! Card teams are welcome to start up as well!
Baking with a Purpose. Second Thursday of the month at 1pm. We find folks who could use some cookies or cupcakes to cheer them, and like to surprise people with themed treats. We welcome donations of boxed mixes, flour, sugar, eggs, etc.
