Our Covid-19 precautions need to change as the governor's guidelines change. Please be mindful of group size and room capacity for activities.
When you enter the building you will be asked to sign the self- assessment health check-in that indicates that you do not have any Covid-19 symptoms, you have not tested positive or know that you have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for the virus in the last 14 days. Please refrain from coming to the Center if these conditions are not met. You must also sign out of the building for contact tracing purposes.
For the foreseeable future, those who are not vaccinated will be required to wear a mask at all times within the building and to maintain a safe 6 foot distance between one another.
The free table is back in operation. Please only bring a few books or puzzles in at a time. If you have a large number of books to donate, please consider bringing them to the main branch of the county library for donation.
For senior residents of Glenville and Scotia only. Senior Center membership not required.
Our van must stay within Glenville/Scotia.

Thank you to H & R Block, Mohawk Honda and Mohawk Chevrolet for helping our seniors. Of course, thank you to Supervisor Chris Koetzle for making this program a reality.

And Things Are Even Better!
On Friday, September 18th, 2020, we celebrated the long-awaited opening of the new addition to the Glenville Senior Center. The new space includes a dedicated office for senior volunteers, a new classroom for increased programming and a recreation room complete with pool table, shuffle board table and large screen television.
While the coronavirus has curtailed some of our activities at the present, this new space will allow for a wider array of activities to be provided in the future.
