Senior Nutrition lunches
Delicious and nutritious lunches are served weekdays at noon, at the El Dorado Hills Senior Center, 990 Lassen Lane. For seniors 60 and older the suggested donation is $3, all others $5. This is a great place to have lunch, meet new people and visit with friends. Reservations are not necessary.
A very special “Thank You”
The El Dorado Hills Senior Center’s annual veterans tribute was extra special this year thanks to the dedicated staff at El Dorado Hills Fire Department. The Color Guard presentation in honor of our veterans was very moving. For the first time, we had the Pipe and Drum Band perform. The music was beautiful and well-appreciated by all in attendance. Thank you El Dorado Hills Fire, again!
