Going forward, there will be no meals served at the center. There will be meals to go available. Call the center at 997-7722 to let them know that you want a meal on Monday, Thursday or Friday, and it will be ready for you to pick up. There will be a sign-up sheet so the center knows how much food to prepare.
The thrift store (Rummage Room) is now closed until further notice. We are playing it safe so the volunteers and seniors are not exposed to the virus. We would like you to save your donations until we are open again, as we have nowhere to store them, and if they are left on the porch they will be stolen by our local thieves.
Please take care of yourself. We all need to do our part to help to not spread the germs. If you don’t feel well, stay home don’t spread your illness. It’s just common sense and being courteous to others. We are a tough bunch up here in our valley — we will survive.
The Senior Center is located next to the Methow Valley Community Center on Highway 20 in Twisp.
