The Renton Senior Center, located near downtown Renton at 211 Burnett Ave. N., has been in operation since 1974 and provides people 55 and over with a home away from home. It includes a coffee shop, many activities including planned trips, crafts, exercise groups and interesting classes that suit a wide range of people. You can read more about upcoming e vents in the summer edition of Renton’s What’s Happening magazine.
If you plan on retiring soon and wonder about additional ways to use your time and talents, consider volunteering in your community. The Senior Center is always looking for volunteers, so do think about giving the Center a call at 425-430-4469 if you are interested in learning more. As a retired nurse, I wanted to utilize my training in ways that would benefit seniors, so now I take blood pressure readings every week. I also am enjoying the opportunity to work with others and to serve on the Renton Senior Center Advisory Board.
