A message from the Director


Hello Everyone,

What a beautiful and HOT June we have starting today! I hope this e-mail finds you well and keeping cool. Again we have a jam-packed newsletter full of great information and wonderful events including a presentation from SHARE Sonoma County on June 10th . This is a great program if you have an extra room to rent but are short on maybe funds, or might need some extra help around the house. Please join us for this free event. Guest and friends are indeed welcome, please sign up on our events board.

VERY IMPORTANT – June 15th is Elder Abuse Awareness Day – please wear purple as a reminder to be aware that elder abuse includes financial abuse, emotional abuse, isolation and physical abuse too. Please watch out for one another. As a reflection of the 163 cases in Cloverdale, during the week of June 13-17, the Senior Center will display a purple flag to represent each case reported in 2015.

Remember that we have air conditioning. We really are a cool place to hang out on the summer! So be sure to stop by and visit your friends at the Center. We’d love to see you!

Have a wonderful month!

Background & History

On September 16, 1987 Genevieve J. Malmstrom signed the Articles of Incorporation. Thus began the Cloverdale Senior Multipurpose Center, originally operating out of the Cloverdale Grange Hall. Soon thereafter, Jim Teague began urging construction of a new senior center building.

Ten years later, the Cloverdale City Council led the effort to secConstructionure grants from several government agencies to construct a new senior center building. At the same time, citizen leaders started raising private funds toward the same end.
Under challenging economic circumstances, over $1,000,000.00 was raised through these two parallel efforts, public and private, and the new building at 311 North Main Street was dedicated May 16, 2003.
