Year in Review: Blaine Senior Center


Looking back, I realize how fast this year has gone by. Maybe because we’ve been busy – I have been told we are too busy!

This year we introduced our new logo and website. Our logo is an anchor, and we feel that the Blaine Senior Center is an anchor for many here in the community. It is a safe place to come. We have a diverse group of members from different backgrounds, ethnicities and religions. We work hard to respect each other for our differences. Our new, updated website can be found at It’s more interactive and more reflective of who we are – seniors in action working for a better community.

This year we had something special happening at the center. We had members who, because of their love of music, have joined to make music! They play at our pancake breakfasts and our other events. Now they are playing at various facilities here in Whatcom County (other senior centers, retirement homes, assisted living facilities and nursing homes). It’s our way of giving back!

We worked with Bellair Tours and Adventures, as well as San Juan Cruises. We’ve enjoyed some great trips and look forward to more in 2020.

We have additional Tai Chi classes due to the demand. We added a new Chair Pilates class. We had a great turnout at our first Health Resource Fair and a very large turnout for “Your Voice, Your Choice” – an advanced care planning workshop!

It was a busy year and now is the time to reflect and to enjoy your time with friends and family. To many, the center is their family. May your holiday season be filled with love and hugs – we can’t get enough of them! Happy holidays to all of you from all of us! And here’s to a bright and beautiful 2020!
