Try the Community Center for lunch

Sandoval County Senior Centers serve noontime meals on site and homebound meals for seniors unable to come to the center. The noontime meals are a great opportunity to eat a well-balanced meal and spend some time visiting with other members of the community.

Meal service at the Placitas Community Center begins at noon and continues until about 12:20 p.m. Residents who are 60 years of age or older may enjoy lunch for $1.50. People under 60 years of age are welcome—including children—but must pay $4.50 per meal. The seniors are served first, while those under 60 will be served at 12:15 p.m.

For further information about the lunch program, call the Placitas Community Center at 867-3196.

Public hearing will receive comments on senior programs

Janice Mortensen
Manager, Placitas Community Center

In accordance with U.S. Public Law 89-73, known as the Older American Act of 1965, the Sandoval County Senior Program will hold a public hearing and forum to provide you, the older person, (age sixty and older) the opportunity to participate in the planning and operation of community-based services and programs provided for your benefit. The hearing is not intended to answer questions; it is to receive your problems, comments, and concerns. The information will be rated and incorporated into the Sandoval County Senior Program area plan. The hearing is scheduled for April 20, from 10:00 a.m. to noon, at the Town of Bernalillo Recreation Center, 371 Rotary Park Road.
