The 2021-2022 Membership Drive is now open!

People power. That is what is helping us ride out the storm that is Covid-19. Over the course of the pandemic, we have seen the power of community—in real time and virtually. The pandemic has tested the resolve and resources of older adults. We have seen tremendous loss but we have also seen tremendous acts of compassion and humanity.  You may have been one of the many older adults that came out in full force to deliver hot meals, make wellness calls or staff testing and vaccination clinics, for the good of the whole community. Or maybe, you were the recipient of these services.

The Edward King House Senior Center continues our commitment to you and others over the age of 50 by serving as a hub for resources and opportunities that support adult learning, independent living, and an enriched quality of life. Membership allows us to sustain these necessary community supports for older adults and aligns you with a community of older adults who are interested in information, advocacy, and networking opportunities. We continue to offer virtual programming and are looking to incorporate safe, in person programs when it is appropriate. There are differing levels of participation for EKH membership that we think will serve your needs in 2021-2022.
