Sensational Singing Seniors
The Sensational Singing Seniors are coming to El Dorado Hills! This energetic group hails from the Placerville Senior Center and is making their debut here at the El Dorado Hills Senior Center. On Tuesday, May 3, at 1 p.m. they are presenting their new program “Seasons of Love.” Admission is free.

Fun Bingo — help needed!
We are in need of callers and cashiers for our long-standing Bingo program. Fun Bingo is played every Monday and Thursday at 12:30 p.m at the Senior Center on Lassen Lane. Each player buys two cards at $1.50 each ($3). The prize for each Bingo is a $5 gift card from our local Raley’s or Nugget stores. We thank our local markets for their support in providing gift cards at a discount.

Senior lunches
Delicious senior nutritional lunches are served weekdays at noon, except holidays, at the El Dorado Hills Senior Center,990 Lassen Lane. For seniors 60 and older the suggested donation is $3, all others $5. The lunches are fresh and tasty and provide a balanced meal, in addition to an opportunity for seniors to socialize and make new friends. Senior Center activities are scheduled daily before and after lunch.
