Due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, the Senior Center will remain closed through Friday, May 31.
Silver Alliance Facilities
All programs and events scheduled at the Senior Center have been cancelled. To protect the community and our volunteers, the Silver Alliance Thrift Store is also closed at this time. All services will be reassessed on an ongoing basis to ensure the safety of our visitors and volunteers.
Current plans are to open the Thrift Store on May 11 with a limited schedule.
The Silver Key Connections Cafe will have Grab-n-Go prepared meals available at the Mennonite Church in Palmer Lake. If you need a meal, please call 719-884-2304 to make a reservation one day prior, or visit www.silverkey.org/connections-cafe-reservations/. If you have any questions or need assistance picking up your meal, please call 719-464-6873. We have an army of volunteers who have graciously offered to deliver these meals to your homes.
What is Silver Alliance Doing?
We are taking all necessary precautions to keep our facilities safe. All surfaces and equipment in both the Senior Center and Thrift Store are being thoroughly cleaned and disinfected regularly. Silver Alliance is taking the virus threat very seriously and we are doing everything in our power to prevent its spread.
Additional updates will be posted here as they become available.
