The Cloverdale Senior Center is booming with the addition of new members, programs and events. The annual Rummage Sale and Pancake Breakfast is on Saturday, September 12th. If you have something to donate to the Rummage Sale, or would like to volunteer, please let us know! Be sure to join us for a fun day!
Now is a great time to be a member! As we announced last month, membership dues will increase, just a little- $15 per person, starting in January. But for now, you can renew your membership for up to 2 years at the current rate of $12 per person and $20 per couple.
We’re always looking for more activities to provide to you, so if you have a talent or interest, please share it with us and your fellow members. Perhaps you’re a retired teacher and would like to share your knowledge with other seniors, or maybe you love to dance and want to return to that passion.
As always, we’re here to help our Members with resources, programs and activities. Please let us know if you need anything. Have a wonderful September!
~ Best wishes,
Colleen P. Hale
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 secure 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.
Cloverdale Senior Multipurpose Center is dedicated to providing Cloverdale residents with activities and services that:
Encourage participation in community life Promote well-being and independence Enhance dignity
