Important Annoucements



Membership is a “good” deal for you. You will provide financial support for your Center. The Center serves around 4,000 individuals, but only between 300 and 400 actually pay dues. All members save on classes, trips, foot care and so much more. At 400 members the Center benefits financially $14,000. Just think if 1,000 joined the Center would receive $35,000 and up it goes with each new member. Dues are $35. We want to encourage you to each bring in one new member during 2014. So, if you forgot, Sign-up now.  Memberships are available at the center, by phone at (206) 297-0403 and online. Thank you.


Holiday closures are listed in our sidebar to the left. The Ballard NW Senior Center usually celebrates each holiday the Friday before if the holiday falls on a weekend. If the holiday falls during the week the Center will often celebrate the day before and then be closed during the holiday.
