Emergency Update

We have some unfortunate news to share. This morning, there was a fire at the Lake City Community Center. The response from first responders was quick and thankfully no one was hurt in the incident. However, the damage to the building is quite extensive and we will not be able to hold programming in the center for the foreseeable future. With that in mind, we will be cancelling programming for the remainder of this week. Meal deliveries will continue as scheduled. We will offer to-go meals at our usual time tomorrow (4/19) & Friday (4/21) at the Lamb of God Lutheran Church.

We know that there will likely be a lot of questions, but we unfortunately do not have many answers at this time. Our team will be busy coordinating a new location so that we can get back up and running. We are asking that you please wait for an update rather than contacting us directly so that we can focus on resuming programming as quickly as possible. Please keep an eye on this website for further updates.

December 2022

How do mountains stay warm?

They put on their snowcaps!

We hope everyone had an amazing holiday!

As we head into winter, we’d like to remind everyone of our inclement weather policy at the Lake City Senior program. If the weather causes schools’ opening times to be delayed, our opening time will be delayed and programming starting before the new opening time will be canceled. If schools are closed, the center will be closed, and all programming will be canceled. Please click here for more information.

We will also be closing the center starting December 23rd in observation of the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. There will be no programming from December 23rd– January 2nd. Programming will return January 4th. There will also be no Lunches at the center these dates so please plan accordingly.

Even though things are winding down for the upcoming holidays, we still have some exciting programming coming up in December.

On December 14th at 1:30pm Susan, who normally leads Folk Dancing for us, will be holding a Holiday Card Making workshop. Come and get your arts and crafts on and this fun and creative workshop! Susan will also be holding her usual Folk Dancing class on Friday, December 16th at 10am.

On December 21st, our Digital Equity Coordinator, John, will be hosting a digital photo management class. This class will provide tips and recommendations for managing photos on your devices. We will discuss how to organize photo storage space, how to safely back up photos, and how to share photos with others.

Please refer to the calendar for all other programming and events. We hope that everyone stays safe and has a happy holiday season!

Cheers!
