Lexington Senior Center re-opening plans

As of Friday, June 11, 2021, the Lexington Senior Center and its satellite locations (Bell House, Charles Young Center and Black & Williams) are open to participants.

Frequently asked questions about re-opening

What activities will be offered?

We will open with just a few activities and add more as time goes by. The Lexington Senior Center will start with group fitness classes, fitness center workouts, billiards and library time. Our satellite centers will have group fitness and some art classes available.

How can I attend these activities?

Participants may begin attending the Senior Center on Friday, June 11, at 8 a.m. Participants are required to sign in using the MySeniorCenter kiosks located at the front desk and upstairs. This will ensure a reserved spot in the in-person fitness classes. 

Can I attend multiple activities each day?

Yes! There is no limit to how many activities a participant can attend in a day. 

Can I stop by the Center and visit with friends for coffee?

Yes! The Center will be open for drop ins and coffee will be served by a volunteer. 

What about art and music classes?

At this time, Lexington Senior Center art classes will remain virtual through Zoom only.  Limited art classes will be offered at the satellite centers. We hope to be able to add art and music to our in-person offerings in the near future. Watch for more detailed information in our LSC newsletters. 

What about bingo, cards, table tennis and lunch?

These activities will need to wait. We hope to be able to add bingo, card games and table tennis to our offerings in the near future, as CDC guidelines change. Lunch is offered on a drive-through basis Tuesday – Thursday. Contact Emily Dahlman at the center for details.
