The Anacortes Senior Activity Center has provided a fun and engaging environment for seniors and others in the community since 1973. After 40 years it’s still going strong, and still uniting the community in more ways than ever.

“It means a lot to me,” she said. “After I retired, I needed something to do that was meaningful.”
The center welcomes members of the community to celebrate its 40th anniversary Saturday, Sept. 28 with an afternoon open house and stories from others about how meaningful the center has been to many people in the community over the years.
