Notice from Senior Services of Van Buren County
In the interest of keeping our seniors as safe as possible, Senior Services of Van Buren County has decided not to open our Activity Centers until there is a vaccine available. While we miss all of our seniors very much, we believe this is the right decision given the age range of our participants. We will publicize on Facebook, area newspapers and our website before the reopening of our centers before take place.
Although our Activities Centers and offices remain closed to the public, our staff is continuing their work to serve the needs of our seniors.
