The Senior Center management and board are dedicated to doing the best for our members and the community at large.
To that end, The Keene Senior Center has been part of meetings and briefings given by local health organizations on COVID-19. The Senior Center has monitored the sites of local, state, federal and global health organizations to inform decisions The Senior Center makes: we want to ensure that decisions we make are based on current information.
There are no confirmed cases of the disease in our immediate area. However, since COVID-19 has created a rapidly evolving situation, The Senior Center wants to do our best to keep members healthy, happy and safe.
THUS, EFFECTIVE SATURDAY, MARCH 14, 2020, THE KEENE SENIOR CENTER IS CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC: LUNCHES, PROGRAMS, AND ACTIVITIES HELD AT THE KEENE SENIOR CENTER WILL BE SUSPENDED TEMPORARILY.
