A Self-Funded 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization
We are extremely excited to be reopening the Senior Center of Elk Grove very soon. It has been too long since we have seen your smiling faces in person.
We will begin with a “soft” reopening on the dates below. There will be no programs on those days. Staff will be there to answer questions, hand out program calendars, take in the new Membership Information forms and process renewals. We will also be giving new membership cards to those members who have completed the new form and are current or have already paid their membership fees.
The Center will fully reopen for programs on Monday, July 19, 2021, at 8:00 am. Our first program will be Aerobics led by Debbie Glincher at 8:30 am.
MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION FORMS
In preparation of reopening, we have mailed a new Membership Information and Hold Harmless form to be completed and signed by currently and prior members.
Before you sign the form, please be sure you read and understand the written portion of it. We have made a few changes, particularly regarding COVID 19, to the Hold Harmless. Every participant will be required to complete the new form before participating in any way at the Senior Center.
You may pay for your membership online, but you cannot participate until we received your completed Membership Information and Hold Harmless form. Please see the Payment/Donation page or use the button below this letter.
The Board of Directors, at the June 14, 2021, meeting, voted to change the Annual Membership Fee from $30 to $40 per year which equals an .83 cent change per month.
The good news is every program will now cost only $2 per person. We believe this fee structure will streamline the program check-in process.
The Center has taken enhanced health and safety measures for its members and staff, so you will see some physical changes throughout the Center as well.
VACCINATIONS AND MASKS
We continue to monitor and will implement all State and County mask and vaccination requirements and guidelines now and in the future. At this time, the State and County health officials have released the following mask and vaccination requirements effective June 15, 2021: Masks are required for unvaccinated individuals in indoor public settings and businesses. If you are unvaccinated, you are currently required to wear a mask at all times inside the Senior Center. By not wearing a mask you self-attest that you are vaccinated. However, if you are vaccinated, please feel free to wear a mask for your own peace-of-mind.
Wearing a mask does not mean the person is unvaccinated.
PREVIOUSLY PURCHASED GIFT CARDS
If you currently have a Gift or Payment card with a balance, you may use those funds towards your membership fee, move the balance to your member account for program fees or request a refund. Please note, without the physical Gift/Payment card, we cannot verify the balance of the card and therefore cannot move, use, or refund any amount you may have left on the card. We will no longer be selling Gift/Payment cards.
We can’t wait to see you again!

Another outstanding exercise video from Activities Director Debbie Glincher for members of the Senior Center. This is comparable to her 2x weekly routine you're familiar with. We want you to stay healthy, fit and fabulous!
The Senior Center of Elk Grove offers a variety of exercise classes for almost every level of activity. We believe that healthy and active seniors are happy seniors.
Whether your passion is painting, writing, crafting, knit/crocheting or card making, we have a creative outlet for you.
Take an awesome trip, play some bingo, bridge, bunco or pinochle or just relax with friends over a puzzle.
The Senior Center of Elk Grove is one of only four self funded non-profit Senior Centers in California. We are not run by the City, County or Recreation Department as most Centers are. We maintain complete control over our programs and services , so we may offer relevant and needed service for our seniors.
The Senior Center of Elk Grove believes that healthy, happy seniors are vital to our community. Staying fit and active helps seniors maintain their independent, vibrant lifestyles.
Come on in for a tour and let us show off our active and friendly Center.
The Senior Center of Elk Grove is honored to have over 100 volunteers who help at the Center throughout the year. The volunteers, including the Board of Directors, give of their talents and time to the Center in many ways.
Volunteer applications are always welcome. Volunteers are vetted and fingerprinted to ensure the Center remains a safe and healthy place for all who enter. Opportunities include: Front Desk, Welcome Desk, Crafters, Knit and Crocheters, Special Events crews, Instructors and Newsletter crew.
While the Senior Center employs four full time employees , the volunteers are the heart and soul of our organizations and we are truly grateful for each and every one.
The Senior Center of Elk Grove, Inc. is one of only four self funded non-profit senior centers in the state of California.
We are governed by a 14 person Board of Directors.
