Help wanted at the Shoreline - Lake Forest Park Senior Center

Thursday, July 7, 2016

The Shoreline - Lake Forest Park Senior Center depends on community members for many of its functions. Right now there is a need for people to deliver the activity guides and people to teach classes.

Deliver Activity Guides

Members of the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center receive an Activities Guide in their mailbox every quarter and are the first ones to receive each new issue. The Center has extras printed to have on hand for those who are new or inquiring about the senior center.

As well, there are extras printed to be distributed in certain locations throughout our community. The individuals who have been making the deliveries can no longer help with that. So, one or two people are needed who can.

There is a list of the places where the delivery of the guides needs to go; two people could easily split the list to make delivery time shorter. This would be a huge help and would help spread the word about the senior center.

One participant noted that the Activities Guide is “like reading the New York Times, there’s so much information in it.” The Guide is one of the ways made available to members and the community to learn about classes, events, support services, lunch menus and so much more.

If this sounds like a service you’d like to help with, contact either Judy Parsons on Mondays and Tuesdays, or Jon Ann Cruver, Wednesday through Fridays via email or call 206-365-1536.

Looking for New Class Instructors!

Program Coordinator Jon Ann Cruver is always on the look-out for new and interesting classes to be presented at the senior center. The classes may be taught on an independent contractor (paid) basis or as a Volunteer Facilitator.

  • The center offers games that are very popular, however, we are looking to expand the types of games that may include cribbage, gin rummy, chess, board games; and we are open to other ideas. Currently offered: pinochle, scrabble, bridge and Mah Jongg (offered at Third Place Commons).
  • The instructor for cell phone/tablet classes has had to move on; seniors are always asking for some help with those electronic devices. The class didn’t tend to be huge but served more as a “coaching” class. Anyone up for that?
  • We would like to offer more languages that may include: beginning/advanced beginner Spanish; a Chinese dialect, one of the Scandinavian languages or?? We are open to suggestions …. and need instructors. Any of the language classes could be a volunteer or paid position.

The October, November, December issue will need to go to the press in early September, with items due August 17. If you feel like you could be the one to bring another class to the center, please contact Jon Ann before the August 17th date so details can be worked out. Email Jon Ann Cruver, Wednesday through Fridays at  or call 206-365-1536.
