    I wanted to take a moment to remind everyone to make sure they do the following:

    1. Make sure you are a registered Member of the Senior Center if you are taking part in any activities. This includes using our Hairdresser, Massage Therapy, transportation, all classes and programs.
    2. If you are registered, please update your information (address, phone number, emergency contact, etc.) with your Membership renewal or as it changes throughout the year.
    3. Obtain a SCAN CARD, if you don’t already have one. PLEASE USE IT.  If you are unsure how to use it, see a staff member and we will gladly show you.  The statistics are very vital to maintain what we offer by showing usage of our classes, programs and services.
