Montpelier Senior Activity Center
For the foreseeable future during the Covid-19 pandemic, MSAC’s facility is closed to the public.
The Governor announced on June 17, 2020 that Senior Centers could begin the process of re-opening, and the state posted the attached guidance and below link, which senior centers, including MSAC, participated in creating. https://dail.vermont.gov/sites/dail/files//documents/Senior_Center_Re-Opening_Plan_Guidance.pdf
Senior Centers must individually assess their readiness, develop their plan based on lengthy and comprehensive guidance received from the state, and safely implement this plan before they can re-open. We are at step one of that process and are currently assessing our readiness and developing our plan. At this time, the earliest date we expect MSAC to re-open is August 10, but at this point in time, that is only an estimate. We will keep you posted in the coming days and weeks as plans move forward. We will also communicate to the public very soon about the status of our readiness and estimated earliest date of re-opening to the public.

"FEAST at Home" senior meals will still be delivered, and "FEAST Together" community meals, will instead be "FEAST To Go" senior meals for a suggested donation of $5-10 for those aged 60 and older, and a charge of $7 for those under the age of 60. Please call 262-6288 to reserve a FEAST To Go meal and plan to pick it up from the tent in the front courtyard at 58 Barre Street Tuesday or Friday (menu and more information available here).
ALL Spring classes, and upcoming events, presentations, clinics, and drop-in groups have been cancelled at MSAC (this includes all off-site classes as well).
As of the time of writing, we are collecting information about our instructors who are or will be offering remote classes independently/privately, and will post info soon. We hope you will check them out!
