The West Haven Senior Center reopened its doors July 8, and every day since has welcomed its membership of residents 55 and older with open arms.
WHSC, based at 201 Noble St. and operated by the Department of Elderly Services, provides a variety of programs and services that allow West Haven’s older residents to “enhance their dignity, support their independence and encourage their involvement with the community.”
Abiding by her predecessor’s monthly bulletin, new Elderly Services Director Alyssa Maddern is also creating and distributing a monthly newsletter, City of West Haven Highlights, through a mailing list and electronically.
According to Maddern, the free newsletter is distributed to more than 300 current and potential WHSC members.
Residents can join the newsletter mailing list by contacting WHSC at 203-937-3507 or email@example.com.
Residents can also get the newsletter on the Elderly Services/West Haven Senior Center page of the city website at https://www.cityofwesthaven.com/161/Elderly-Services.
“The West Haven Senior Center is thrilled to be back open and is pleased to have back its current WHSC members and welcome new members,” Maddern said. “We are here to serve the West Haven senior community and are always striving to enhance our innovative programming and support services.”
Maddern added: “So if you or someone you know has any questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. Welcome to your home away from home, and see you next time at the West Haven Senior Center!”
