After many months of closed doors and limited services due to the health emergency, the Clovis Senior Activity Center is preparing to reopen to the public on July 2, 2021.
On Thursday, hundreds gathered at the Clovis Senior Activity Center to celebrate the imminent reopening. Seniors enjoyed a carnival themed event which featured a BBQ lunch, live music, carnival games, raffle prizes and a resource fair. Clovis Mayor Jose Flores and Councilmembers Lynne Ashbeck and Drew Bessinger joined the celebration.
Friday’s reopening will mark the beginning of a new schedule of enrichment classes, including dance, art and yoga.
While the senior center was forced to close for most activities during the pandemic, the staff remained busy delivering meals to seniors, conducting virtual programs, and providing resources via phone and online to residents.
“Our community’s seniors were disproportionally impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Not only were they vulnerable to COVID due to their age, many suffered alone due to social distancing requirements.” said Amy Hance, City of Clovis General Services Manager. “Now we are thrilled to welcome them back to reconnect
with friends, participate in our many programs, and make up for time away due to the pandemic.”
The Clovis Senior Activity Center is located at 850 Fourth Street in Clovis and is open to anyone ages 50 years and older. Those interested in upcoming programs should call 559-324-2750.
