*****Scottville Senior Center closes in-center activities again due to COVID*****
Dear guests…To protect the health of everyone affiliated with the Scottville Senior Center, we are going to close our in-center activities again—effective at 4:30 Thursday, Nov. 12.
We expect this temporary closure to last at least until the end of the year.
We’re very sorry but the latest COVID news has gotten progressively more threatening during the two weeks we’ve been open.
We will re-evaluate at the end of the year to see if we can re-open once again. This will be determined by the trend in positive cases and hospitalizations, as well as progress toward availability of a vaccine.
We intend to revert to our previous methods of serving our senior population, including our county-wide in-home and limited medical transportation programs (for those who choose to participate). Since the weather is now too cold for outdoor classes, we will also institute online programs for exercise and other activities, replacing the programs we’ve been doing at Riverside Park.
We are sorry to have to close again after such a brief time, but we think the surge in COVID cases has heightened the risk to unacceptable levels.
Exception: Those with reservations for the painting class and quilting on Monday, November 16, will be allowed to enter to pick up any materials they need.
In-center lunches will stop after Thursday, November 12.
Take-out meal option. However, we have arranged to try having take-out meals for those who make reservations. The meals will be same as the home-delivered meals listed in the newsletter.
Take-out lunches will be available Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, with pick-up between 11:30 and noon. The reservation deadline is 9:00 am on those days—but calling a day in advance is appreciated.
Meals-On-Wheels also available: Those who normally have lunch at the center are still invited to sign up for home delivered meals, by calling 757-4831.
Welcome to the Scottville Area Senior Center!
The Scottville Area Senior Center is located in the heart of downtown Scottville in West Michigan. Scottville is known for its friendly atmosphere, rural beauty, and the scenic Scottville Riverside Park along the Pere Marquette River.
The Mission of the Scottville Area Senior Center is to provide in-home services to eligible seniors throughout Mason County, and to provide a congenial place for those on the “up side” of 50 to meet, enjoy weekday lunches, receive services and participate in activities that will enhance their dignity, support their independence and encourage their involvement in and with the community. The center has been in operation since 1973 as part of Mason County Central Schools. Scottville Area Senior Center is proudly serving Mason County.
Thank you! Funds to provide services are received through:
