WOW How Things Have Changed!!!

We are looking forward to having you back several days at the Senior Activities Center. Many changes have occurred since Covid, such as a brand new Exit. When you leave the Senior Center you will now exit to the right through the new doorway. The original front doors are entrance only and the new doors are exit only.

Protocols for coming to the Senior Center

  • Please stay home if not feeling well
  • Mask required indoors regardless of your vaccination status 
  • Please expect a signs and symptoms screening upon arrival
  • Please wipe down your seating area after use

In an effort to provide outdoor activities the Senior Activities Center partnered with Washington County Parks and Recreation.

We want to thank Parks and Recreation for giving us use of their facilities to provide recreation to our members.

Pre-registration is required for ALL Senior Center Activities as part of COVID-19 safety standards! Reservations may be made by calling (301) 790-0275 ext. 243 or 246.
