  Parking Lot Construction Update   

We're getting our shovels ready!

 
W e are very pleased to announce that we will soon have a new parking lot! Thank you to the many generous donors who helped us reach our goal. 

Construction begins on Monday, September 26. Heavy equipment will be on site and the sidewalks and curbs will be removed as the first step. Due to safety concerns, our Stillwater location will be closed to programming and visitors during this initial phase of work. 
We have offered alternative sites for our groups and activities, and many of the programs will be offered at our Bayport Senior Center location. Click here for directions to our Bayport location. Please call our office at 651-439-7434 to get details on specific programs or activities while our parking lot is under construction. Depending on the weather, the entire project may take 3 - 4 weeks, but we will reopen the parking lot to participants as soon as we feel it is safe.
