The Senior Center is now accepting donations of of CDs, videos and books.Volunteers are needed to help with parties, shopping and other activities.

  • In addition, about 50-60 Brown Bags (groceries) are handed out each week.
  • Seniors exercise every Monday morning with a Zumba trainer.
  • Seniors play bingo on Tuesdays and Fridays. They can win food items, plants, and flowers.
  • Seniors take trips to places such as San Juan Bautista, Sausalito, Monterey, San Francisco Wharf, Half Moon Bay, etc.
  • Holidays are filled with special activities, like the short program included with lunch for Mother's Day, the BBQ on Father's Day, birthday recognition, a Halloween costume party, and Thanksgiving Day lunch.
