Senior center opening its doors
The new Marysville One Stop Senior Center is hosting an open house from 9 to 11 a.m. today at 938 14th St., giving the public an advance view of activities planned to start in March.
On view is the dining room which will serve meals to seniors five days a week excluding holidays, under the direction of QuEST Senior Nutrition.
The dining room will open at 10 a.m. and serve meals prepared with fresh ingredients at 11:45 a.m. The requested donation for the meal will be $2 for seniors over 60 years and $5 for those under 60, with reservations required.
Seniors will not be denied a service because of an inability to make a donation.
Activities planned at the new site, located in Yuba County's empty 14th Street Annex building, include bingo, cards, fitness classes and a garden club.
The program will also house other businesses, groups and persons to help seniors with basic activities. Organizations already on site include Nor-Cal Center on Deafness and Home Health Management.
QuEST sponsors three other dining sites: Yuba City Senior Center, 777 Ainsley Ave., call 822-5611; Ponderosa Community Center, 17103 N. Ponderosa Way, Brownsville, call 675-2027; and the Wheatland Senior Center, 705 Third St., call 633-9212.
QuEST Senior Nutrition is funded by Area 4 Agency on Aging and donations from the community. For more information about the Marysville site, call 741-9600, Ext. 309.
