As 2012 winds down, the staff, volunteers and participants of the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center look forward to a busy new year.

The center will be closed on December 31 and January 1; the December 31st closure date was not published earlier.

Membership 2013
As 2013 is closing in soon, the center is continuing to accept new memberships or renewals. Single memberships are $25, couples are $45. A membership at the senior center includes special discounts for classes and events, a free birthday month lunch, as well as getting the bi-monthly Activites Guide sent to your home. Memberships also help support the senior center and is not limited to seniors, we welcome members of our community as a way of lending their support, as well.

Lunchtime for All
Lunch is served every week-day, 11:45am-12:30pm; $3.00 donation for those 60 and over; $6.00 charge for those under 60. The "from scratch" menu receives rave reviews from the 90 plus diners who come each day. This could be a nice lunch alternative to those who are at the Conference Center and prefer not to have to leave the campus for lunch; just walk over and enjoy a delightful hot lunch!
