The open house will be Saturday, Oct. 1, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

ATASCADERO — On Saturday, Oct. 1, the Atascadero Senior Center is holding an open house to celebrate Colony Days in Atascadero from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Senior Center, which is located at 5905 East Mall next to the Sunken Gardens Park, will be offering tours as well as refreshments and snacks. 

During the open house, the center typically arranges to offer free flu vaccines, but it has not been confirmed if Walgreens will have enough volunteers to administer them this year. A fun and comforting addition are that Ranger The Bodacious Beach Dog will be there for guests to give belly rubs from noon to 2 p.m.

The center has invited Atascadero Mayor Heather Moreno and SLO County District 5 Supervisor Debbie Arnold. They also are sharing their gratitude to SLO County District 2 Supervisor Bruce Gibson for helping the senior center acquire the grant to perform the roof repairs.


Currently serving the senior community with class offerings, such as tai chi, chair yoga, bunco and an occasional art group, the center has recently upgraded its courtyard, where more classes soon will be held. In addition, the center offers informational resources, as well as loans out free assistive gear such as walkers and wheelchairs. The center is allied with the Meals That Connect program which is located on the property. 

Call (805) 466-4674 for more information.
