7/29 Update: Yesterday, Governor Inslee extended the pause indefinitely on counties moving ahead in the Safe Start Washington plan. SVSC is currently planning on restarting small group planning when King County reaches Phase 3. We are adding more virtual programming to our calendar every week, which you can find on our website here, https://snovalleysenior.org/events/events-calendar/
Following the phased re-opening of King County, the Sno-Valley Senior Center will remain closed until further notice, aside from a few one-on-one appointments (dental clinic & reflexology). We will continue offering Community Dining meals to-go or for delivery (if needed) and our Meals on Wheels program. For more information or to place an order for a meal, you can call 425-333-4152.
