WESTERLY

Westerly Senior Center is located at 39 State St., Westerly. Center hours are Mon. to Fri., 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Phone: 401-596-2404.

With the senior center open on a limited basis, now is the time for renovations. Staring last week, the parking lot was torn up and is being repaved over the next few weeks. Seniors will be able to use the parking lot most days, but occasionally may have to park on State or Westminster Streets.

For the next two or three weeks, as a result of a grant received by the town to renovate to the center, the mealsite area will be cordoned off. The front half of the building and the back section of the back of the building will be open for bingo and limited activities. For those picking up the grab and go lunches, come through the doors by the circular ramp or through the doors off the parking lot. To come in for bingo, come in the back doors, not the ones by the office.

Staff members will be available Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.at 401-596-2404 to answer the phone. Messages can be left on Lucy’s voice mail otherwise.
