May 1, 2020 Update
Meridian Senior Center will remain closed until June 15th, 2020 in accordance with the Governor’s “Stages of Reopening” plan. Please see the letter below from Toni.
Our doors may be closed but the heart of our Center is wide open! In order to provide Meals on Wheels the ability to prepare delivered and curbside pick-up meals, we are meeting the expenses required. Utilities, custodial sanitization services for the bathrooms and kitchen, phone, internet, insurance and supplies are expenditures being covered.
Our dear Irene is delivering meals to our bus riders and checking on them regularly. Lisa, with patience and fortitude, is consoling the brides whose weddings are being postponed and helping them and others to reschedule their events. Donna, our sensible bookkeeper, is seeing that our bills are paid on time. Sweet Mary is answering the phone and calming us all. And our ever-efficient Cindy is directing and coordinating everything. We have not abandoned our employees who serve us so devotedly. Their salaries are reduced but we are doing our best to provide monetary support to meet their needs.
Needed and already committed improvements are being made now that would have required closures in order to complete. Our coffers are sufficient to meet all our expenses, but you can anticipate a lot of fun fundraisers to refill our accounts.
We are considering ways to conduct reopening our doors. We must consider safety and everyone's health and well-being as well as follow the governor's and mayor's guidelines. Our hope is to open for limited seating lunch service June 15th, 2020 however activities will remain on hold, please continue to bear with us.
You are welcome to send an email with questions to Cindy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We miss you all terribly, please stay safe and be well.
Toni, Board Members, Cindy & Lisa

Senior Grocery Shopping Hours (Albertsons)
Help Us Help Our Neighbors
To help ensure that the most at-risk members of our community who must leave home to obtain groceries are taken care of, we are reserving 7 am to 9 am on Tuesdays and Thursdays for them.
During those times we ask that you avoid shopping so that the stores can be available for senior citizens, and other at-risk members of our community such as pregnant women or those with compromised immune systems.
We appreciate your patience and support as you help us with this temporary request to ensure our neighbors' needs are met.
Fred Meyer: Store Hours For Seniors
Monday-Thursday, we are reserving the first hour of shopping time, from 7-8 am, for senior citizens (ages 60 and above) and other at-risk customers, as defined by the CDC.
Welcome to Center At The Park! We’re excited you found us and eagerly wait to meet you at the new center!
As part of the Meridian community for more than 50 years, the members own and operate the center as a non-profit organization. As an individual non-profit organization, we have no ties with the City of Meridian, nor do they govern or dictate our activities in any way. We are governed by a Board of Directors nominated by fellow center members who strictly serve as volunteers in their positions.Read More
