New Senior Center Opens Its Doors

ELLSWORTH — Faith in Action has opened the doors for its new senior center in Ellsworth.


The programming takes place every weekday morning in the former Bryant E. Moore School on State Street.

Hours are 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., with a coffee house for seniors open every day from 9 to 11 in the cafeteria.

Programs include a class in “Basic Drawing,” board games and cards in the coffee house, “Bocce,” book talks put on by the Ellsworth Library, and special musical performances.

Soon to come will be exercise and wellness programs, dance and various crafts, as well as a computer lab.

The center is open to seniors 55 years and older. There is no charge. Seniors are asked to register at the front door when they enter the building.

The center is easy to access by the local bus, Downeast Transportation, and seniors may ride the bus free of charge when they come to the center. Transportation can also be arranged through Faith in Action volunteers.

Call 664-6016 for more information.
