The Doris Krauss Senior Center is open on Monday each week from 10 am until 2 pm. A hot lunch is served at noon for a cost of $2.00. An average of 30 seniors come to the center each week to participate in the activities and have lunch. A nurse is at the center two Mondays a month to take blood pressure and answer questions about health issues. Some of the activities that are available include singing, dancing, exercise, water color instruction, mahjong, bingo, knitting, and card-making. Old First is handicapped-accessible. We celebrate holidays and birthdays each month; volunteers and seniors help with the set up and decorations for each meal.
We welcome all interested seniors to participate in our program. We are dedicated to creating a place where seniors can gather weekly to talk, socialize, exercise, and enjoy made-from-scratch food around the “Family Table”.
We especially need volunteers to help with the program. Right now we are in need of a dance or movement instructor, a Tai Chi instructor and a computer person. Volunteers also help serve meals. If you are interested in being part of our program, either as a senior or a volunteer, please call Gina Withers, Director of the Doris Krauss Senior Center, at 415-776-5552.
