McAuley Senior Center Reopens July 6
The McAuley Senior Center in Hot Springs Village is reopening! After being closed since March of 2020 due to COVID-19, the center is scheduled to reopen on Tuesday, July 6 (Monday being observed July 4th holiday), and they are planning on coming back better than ever. The facility located at 5010 Hwy 7 North took advantage of the past year to make some needed and exciting improvements. “Although we hated being closed due to the pandemic, it did allow us time to reimagine what the center could be and our renovations are just the beginning,” states Kellie Chacon, Site Manager. “All of our regular programs and classes will return and we now have space to think about and incorporate new programming.”
“The McAuley Senior center has been ‘reimagined’, members will notice a few changes,” says Donna Bates, Program Coordinator. “We now have a new dance studio with wall to wall mirrors, new flooring throughout the facility, a fun new Bistro coffee center in the front entry, new poolroom light fixtures over each table and walls were removed to create new classroom space. The building has a fresh new look. Our thrift shop, Meals on Wheels and Corner Store will also reopen.”
While the center was closed Meals on Wheels services continued throughout Garland County and both the McAuley Center and the Hot Springs Senior Center set up curbside meal service for its membership. Along with reopening, all members will need to renew their membership, so find your membership card or request a new one upon your first visit back to the center. New members are welcome, new member and renewal registrations are free.
