Update On October Happenings At Senior Center

Update On October Happenings At Senior Center


The Senior Center is happy to announce that some indoor programming will be offered starting in October. During this transition to indoor programming, all are asked to be very diligent and strongly adhere to all the CDC guidelines. Proper mask wearing, sanitizing, and social distancing will be strictly enforced for the health and safety of members and staff. Those who choose not to follow the CDC guidelines will be asked to leave the building. 

Registration is required for all programs. Staff will also be available for scheduled in-person appointments. Everyone will be prescreened and temperatures will be taken at the door. Unfortunately, unregistered participants or “walk-ins” will not be allowed into the building at this time.

 

Medicare Open Enrollment

The Medicare Open Enrollment Period runs from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7. New coverage begins on Jan. 1, 2021. Appointments beginning on Thursday, Oct. 15, can be made by calling the Senior Services Social Work office at (203) 272-8030.
