Due to budget cuts, the Senior Center has closed the Thursday evening meals; home delivery seniors may receive an additional meal during the week to compensate.

Meals are a $3.50 donation for seniors 60 or older, $9 for those under 60. Lunches are served at 12 noon Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Tuesday meals are served on Tuesday evenings at 5:30 p.m. There is a salad bar every Tuesday at 5 p.m. and Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. Milk is served with all meals. Please call the day before or by 9:30 a.m. at the latest on the same day to reserve your meal.
