EVERETT – The Carl Gipson Senior Center will celebrate 40 years of programming, community and activities on Friday, June 15 at 11:30 a.m. at the center, 3025 Lombard Ave.
As the City of Everett continues celebrating its 125th anniversary throughout the summer, the Senior Center also celebrates a major milestone this year. Staff, volunteers and members are invited to celebrate the center’s 40th anniversary with a 70’s themed BBQ, trivia and decorations from the era.
“The opening and expansions of this center have been vital in providing quality programs and services to Everett’s senior citizens,” said Bob Dvorak, senior center director. “There is so much to celebrate with how far senior services have come over the years.”
What started as a group of Everett residents organizing programs for retired community members in 1959, the Senior Center now serves over 5,000 members and offers 15-20 programs each day. The Everett Senior Activity Center first opened its doors on June 15, 1978. The center was renamed the Carl Gipson Senior Center in 2010 in honor of longtime community leader and senior center member, Carl Gipson.
The BBQ lunch, provided by Homage Senior Services, is free for members 60 years or older, and $6 for members ages 50-59. Free membership is open to individuals 50 years or older and is required to participate in programs.
The Carl Gipson Senior Center offers a variety of programs and services for community members 50 years or older. Learn more about the center, and the programs and services available at www.everettwa.gov/seniorcenter.
