In-Person is Back!

Published on May 04, 2021

We are excited to announce the expansion of in-person programming beginning in early May. We will be starting with our existing bridge, art, cribbage, mahjong, and grief support groups in May and plan to add new in-person offerings from June through the end of the year. We are so glad that the vaccination rollout and actions we have all taken for the last year in accordance with the state and federal guidelines have helped us get to this point.
We are connecting with our existing groups now to finalize timeslots and estimated participants. Our yoga and tai chi classes will continue to be virtual for time being. We are planning a hybrid approach for our luncheon in May allowing for both curbside pickup and limited seating in-person.
Masks will be required while in the building. You’ll need to pre-register for all in-person activities by giving us a call once the calendar is finalized. Pre-registration enables us to manage the total number of people in the Center at any given time in accordance with the guidelines from the governor and state/federal CDC for indoor gathering sizes and capacity.
Like we did before the pandemic, you will be asked to sign-in when you arrive for your program and answer a few COVID screening questions on the sign-in sheet.
We plan to use the timeslots used in the past for the established bridge, cribbage, mahjong, art and grief support groups and will adjust as necessary.

Program Spotlight: Take & Make Succulent Kits Workshop

Published on Apr 28, 2021

Our Members enjoyed a virtual Take & Make Succulent Kit Workshop via Zoom last week! An instructor from the Kennebunk Free Library was good enough to join us to help our Members pot their very own succulents and answer care questions.

The Early Bird Gets the Deals

Published on Apr 22, 2021

Did you know that the Center helps support seniors in the Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, and Arundel communities? We offer educational programs, informational workshops, art classes, social activities, volunteer opportunities, and physical movement classes! We also facilitate community-wide programs like our Elder Elves program to support isolated seniors during the holidays, and our FISH Medical Rides Program which helps seniors with rides to and from appointments.

This work is supported in part by fundraisers like our Kennebunk Beach Classic, which is now in its 29th year. Not a runner? No problem! You can still show your support for seniors in our communities by registering for this race (virtual this year!) and walk with a friend, your dog, a family member, or a good audiobook to keep you company.

Early Bird pricing is in effect until May 1st, and we have promo codes for students and faculty of RSU21 (call us at 207-967-8514 for more info!) so register now for the best rates!
