POLSON — This is National Volunteer Month. We will recognize and celebrate the contributions of volunteers who have either formerly or currently serve at our Polson Senior Center. Help us add to our current list. If you, or someone you know, has volunteered at the center in past years, have them call us with their name, phone contact, and any information they have about their service. This would include former board members, drivers, commodities helpers, activities leaders, instructors or any others who have shared their time and talents. Celebrations will be at lunch time during the fourth week of April. 

April 15 is Tax Day. Tax assistance is available at the senior center on Mondays and Thursdays until then. Call Us for an appointment time. 

Applications are now being accepted for a director for nutrition, starting ASAP. Full or part-time. Pick up application and job description at the center. Some cooking experience and office skills preferred.
