It’s been a long time since we have been able to meet together, but we finally have a reopening date.  We had begun having very limited activities on Tuesday, October 20th. Senior groups of twelve were allowed inside the kitchen/recreation part of the center and eight were allowed in the quilt room.  We had two time slots for seniors Tuesday through Friday, a morning group and an afternoon group. 

The morning group attended from 9:30 until 11:30 and the afternoon group attended from 1:30 until 3:30. Our staff sanitized between each group.  Activities were very limited.  We played Bingo on Tuesday and Thursday at 11:00 and at 3:00.  Because of social distancing guidelines we did not play any card games or dominoes.  Other activities will be added at a later date depending on how things go after we reopen.

It was mandatory that you called the center at 986-1985 and schedule the time you wished to attend.  Once we were at capacity no one else was allowed in the center.  Everyone was required to wear a mask and have their temperature checked.  The center was not allowed to serve any food or drinks.  If they wanted to bring their own food or drink they were allowed to do so, but no sharing was allowed unless you live in the same household.

 If you feel sick on the day you are scheduled to attend please do not come to the center.  All it will take is for one person to get sick and we will be shut down immediately. These guidelines are not something we have just made up, they are guidelines sent to us from our state office.  Feel free to give us a call if you have any questions.

Covid has taken away a lot from us as a senior center.  Even though we are allowed to open back up we are very limited in what we can do as far as activities.  This means we can’t have our Halloween party this year.  We have decided to have a virtual mask contest!  This won’t be as much fun as our in-person costume contest, but it will still be fun.  We will be judging your best Halloween Covid Mask and your best Traditional Halloween mask.  We ask that you please post pictures of yourself wearing the mask on our facebook page or drop your pictures off at our office.  If you are dropping off your pictures, please call ahead because if we are at capacity, we will need to meet you outside.  Be sure you include your name with your post on facebook or write your name and phone number on the picture if dropping them off.  We will have judges choose a best Covid Halloween Mask and a best traditional Halloween Mask.  Each winner will receive a $25.00 Walmart gift card.  Please have your pictures to us by no later than Monday, October 28th.  Entries received later than the 28th will not be considered in the contest.  The winners will be announced on October 30th.  Our login for our facebook page is ccscaging.
