Senior Lecture Series

The Senior Center has been closed by a mandate from the governor and we are not permitted to re-open until that mandate has been lifted.

This includes all senior programming, hot kosher lunch and to-go meals, along with transportation. We will let you know as soon as we hear more information.

Our Senior Center Lecture Series offers rare opportunities to hear from top thinkers, artists, chefs, authors, and innovators in intimate conversations that connect, enrich, and inspire. Join us by emailing Melissa Shrimplin at
