YEAR END DONATIONS
SNOW & HOLIDAY CLOSURES
The year end request for a tax deductible donation is in the mail to participants and the community. I hope each will be as generous as their situation allows. The center celebrated its 40th Anniversary this year, so we are suggesting a $40 or more contribution, but any amount is gratefully accepted. The center makes a difference in so many lives. Thank you for your support of the center and all who participate here and call us “Their home away from home.” Thank you for being a generous donor.
Holiday closures are listed in our sidebar to the left. It is also that time of year. The white stuff could arrive. If and when it does please remember we follow the Seattle school district plans. If the schools are closed or late, so is the center. Before venturing out please call to be sure we are open. In bad weather the best and safest place for you is in your own home. No trip to the center is worth a fall, broken bones or a smashed car. Please be careful.
Known as the place "Where Friends Meet Friends" the Ballard NW Senior Center is
dedicated to offering a wide selection of fun opportunities and helpful services.
Sign up as a member here. Members benefit by paying less for footcare,
chair massage, trips, some classes, and the center benefits from your support.
