Lunch Orders & Activity Sign Ups
Please contact the WSSC office by 12:00 noon the preceding day (Friday at 12:00 noon for Monday orders) to order your lunch for the next day. Please also indicate if you will be eating in or if you would like your meal to-go. If you prefer, you are also welcome to hand in your lunch calendar monthly to WSSC Manager, Erin Grable, WestShoreSeniorCenter@messiahlifeways.org
The Cumberland County Office of Aging (CCOA) takes on the responsibility of paying $4.92 for every meal served at Cumberland County Senior Centers. WSSC politely ask that everyone contribute a $3 donation per meal they eat at WSSC or pickup to-go. This is not mandatory, but it does help give some money back to the County who helps keep the senior centers running. As WSSC increase the number of activities they’re offering, it is also helpful for them to be prepared for the number of members they have participating in certain events. Please sign up ahead of time (monthly or weekly) for activities including Tai Chi, chair yoga, and bingo.
Crafts with Judy, Sally, and Loretta
Judy Razvillas, Sally Biller, and Loretta Allen will continue with a craft one Monday each month! If you would like to participate, please sign up no later than the preceding Monday. This will allow the ladies time to collect the appropriate amount of materials needed for the craft. Please hand in a calendar with the activity marked or see Erin or Jenny and they will make sure you are registered.
WSSC celebrate birthdays once a month for anyone who has a birthday that month. Let them know what month your birthday lands on!
Community Room Rentals
Messiah Lifeways is excited to continue renting out the community room to members, as well as anyone from the community. If you or someone you know is looking for a space to rent for a party, please contact Jenny for more information.
Suggested Membership Fee
While the $25 annual membership fee is not required, WSSC politely ask that everyone please consider making an effort to help keep the Senior Center running. As a member who donates the annual $25 fee, you will also be able to receive discounts on certain trips. WSSC thanks you greatly for your consideration!
