When their old location at 446 Bridge Street was scheduled to be demolished, the Seniors moved their thrift store to the Learning Center at 939 Bridge Street. The newly named “Bridge Street Bargains” is now up and running and is loaded with merchandise for the thrifty shopper.
The Senior office is also on site at the new Bridge Street location. Community Action Team’s Karen Miller is available in the office on Mondays to assist seniors with their issues and concerns.
The big change for the Seniors is the relocation of the lunchtime meal program to the American Legion Hall which shares space with the Vernonia Cares Food Bank at 627 Adams Avenue. Catered meals, which are delivered and warmed on site, will be served on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, beginning early in April.
“Since the Food Bank is open Tuesday and Thursday, this seems like a good fit and will make heating the meals easier for the cook, Wendy West,” said Sandy Welch, Executive Director of Vernonia Cares as well as the Secretary for the Senior Center Board of Directors
According to Welch Friday afternoon games will also be relocated to the Legion Hall.
