Senior Program

Our goal is to enhance the health and social well-being of our adult community by providing access to health and social services, as well as opportunities for education, recreation, and involvement with the community.

For more information about the Senior Program, please email Wendy or call 425-432-1272.

Positive social interactions on a consistent basis help keep seniors stimulated, mentally sharp, and intellectually engaged, often leading to reduced stress and longer lifespan.

Senior Lunch

Congregate Lunch

Lunch is catered by EJ's and served after Bingo at noon every M/W/F. We alternate days with the Black Diamond Community Center ​which provides congregate meals at their site on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The purpose of this program is to provide nutritious meals in a group setting, encourage social interaction, reduce isolation, and to make support services available to seniors age 60 and over. 

For those individuals ages 60+, a suggested donation of $5 helps cover the cost of the meal. For those younger than 60, there is a $7 fee for lunch.

Trips & Events


We are pleased to offer fun and interesting trips for ages 50+. All trips include transportation, parking fees, a staff member, and admission fees unless otherwise noted. Trips are typically scheduled on Tuesdays or Thursdays of each month. Payment is due at time of registration. Reservations may be refunded minus a $10 service fee if made more than 48 hours in advance. In case we have to purchase tickets in advance, a non-refundable policy will be implemented.
