Eat, drink and give thanks Thursday, Nov. 24, at noon when the Pasadena Senior Center, 85 E. Holly St., will offer a traditional turkey feast with all the gobbling good trimmings. Members and nonmembers of all ages are welcome.
The Scott Pavilion at the center will be adorned with Thanksgiving and autumn décor. Diners will enjoy a delicious, traditional Thanksgiving meal, as well as vegetarian options, in a festive and fun atmosphere, accompanied by Larry Klug on piano.
“For most of 2020 and 2021, during the worst part of the COVID pandemic, older adults were mostly isolated at home and the Pasadena Senior Center was closed for everything except the most basic social services,” said Akila Gibbs, executive director of the center. “Now we have reopened and can once again serve as a place for people to congregate for activities and events, including holiday celebrations, in an environment of safety and camaraderie.”
Reservations are required no later than Monday, Nov. 21. The cost for the Thanksgiving luncheon is only $15 for members and $20 for non-members of all ages. To register, visit www.pasadenaseniorcenter.org and click on Activities & Events, then Special Events or call 626-795-4331.
Proof of COVID vaccination is required to attend; masks are optional.
In addition to online classes, onsite events and other activities, members and nonmembers of the Pasadena Senior Center are encouraged to visit the website regularly for a quarterly online magazine, free food delivery for older adults in need, COVID updates specifically for older adults and more.
The center is an independent, donor-supported nonprofit organization that has served older adults for more than 60 years. During the pandemic, doors are open Mondays through Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for social services as well as the library, Sy Graff Fitness Center, computer lab and limited occupancy for events. Rooms are sanitized after each use.
In accordance with Pasadena Public Health Department guidelines, proof of COVID vaccination is required for everyone who uses the fitness center or attends onsite activities indoors.
