The Perham Senior Center will open its doors Tuesday, April 20. Activities include cards, puzzles, cribbage and visiting only. If there is anyone who wants to learn how to play cribbage, the Senior Center has a few people who would love to teach. The center hopes to eventually set up a cribbage league, but for now, they are just playing games with each other.

The center has no food at this time but hopes to have food served by July. Since seniors are a vulnerable age group in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, the center needs to be safe. Its main goal is to keep everyone healthy.

According to director of the Perham Senior Center Carol Peeters, there are a few new rules, and if they plan to open safely, they have to abide by them.

"I am very anxious to see everyone again, and hopefully we can all stay healthy so we can continue to be together at the Senior Center," Peeters said.

If you have not had you vaccine, you can call the Otter Tail County Public Health at 218-998-8320 for more information.


The Senior Center is at 300 West Main St. If you have any questions, feel free to call 218-346-2262.
