There are some volunteers that really have the passion—the passion to help and serve others. And, Jan Fisher is one of those volunteers!
Jan came to the Senior Center about seven years ago when a friend who played bridge here suggested she try volunteering. Jan had already served on many nonprofit boards in executive positions, but she really wanted to work with her hands and provide a service that she could see directly benefitting people. So, Jan joined our kitchen crew and immediately knew she was in the right role. She loves seeing people’s smiling faces as they enjoy food at the Senior Center.
At the Senior Center of West Seattle, we believe that we should be a vibrant reflection of the community members that make this space their own. As we celebrate a monumental milestone in our history, we continue to be hard at work to ensure our physical spaces and our programming match the vitality and needs of our community.
For months now, we’ve been hard at work giving our building, the “Jewel of the Junction,” a refresh. Now, as you enter our lobby, you’ll be greeted by bright and modern colors. Our reception space features new flooring and an inviting space to gather. Upstairs, almost every inch has been repainted for a fresh, clean look. Walking through the café and into the classrooms, the theme continues. Finally, but perhaps most importantly, our restrooms upstairs have been completely redone to be more accessible and contemporary.
Refreshing the Senior Center would not have been possible without the dedication of S365 Consulting + Design, our board of directors, staff members, volunteers and donors.
If you have not visited the Senior Center in a while, come by and see us. Join a class, have a cup of coffee in our café or come to an event. And, please continue to make this community your own. Our members are the ones who bring the Senior Center to life.
