Everyone can enjoy our senior center

It’s not just a place “where old people go.”

As someone on the lower end of the senior spectrum (in my sixties) I have to laugh when I hear the senior center dismissed as a place where old people go hang out. I have been going to the center since I retired last summer and am amazed by this excellent resource.

The free computer and smart phone tutoring has been extremely helpful for navigating constantly changing technology. The daily programs offer something for everyone and the center has resources for almost any need you can think of. Most importantly, as I start to experience the senior reality of being invisible, I am greeted with warmth and respect every time I walk in.

Everyone in Enumclaw can be proud of our amazing senior center.
