Updates from the Director

Finding our new normal – 

As we continue to travel into uncharted territory, I can’t help but wonder what our new “normal” will look like. I’m sure many of you are wondering the same thing.

As we prepare to reopen the Senior Center, the health and wellbeing of our members remains in the forefront of our minds. Our whole staff team wishes we could return to our old normal routines but unfortunately times have changed. Here’s a glimpse of our new “normal” at the Senior Center.

For Your Safety & Protection

– We highly suggest wearing a mask while visiting the Senior Center. Masks help       prevent the spread of germs and help keep all visitors and staff safe.

– We also highly encourage your to sanitize or wash your hands upon entry and exiting VSC. There are six hand sanitizers on the walls around the building.

– Floor markers will be used to indicate social distancing recommendations between participants.
