On Nov. 1, we are going to start new winter hours: 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, closed Saturday. This will help some of the volunteers who have a long drive home to get home before dark. The Senior Center is again going to honor our veterans on Nov. 11 at 11 a.m. All veterans are invited with a guest for the program and luncheon.
The Senior Center is located next to the Methow Valley Community Center on Highway 20 in Twisp. Lunch is served at noon by the Okanogan County Transportation and Nutrition Program on Monday, Thursday and Friday. The suggested donation for lunch is $4 for seniors over age 60; the cost is $8.50 for those under 60. Annual membership dues are $1.25.
The senior center’s Rummage Room is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. During Farmer’s Market season, it is also open on Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon.
Transportation is available locally for the senior lunch program, and for monthly trips to Omak/Okanogan the second Tuesday of the month and to Wenatchee the third Tuesday of the month. Call 1-800-635-4391 for additional details.
