WRSC: The center with the 'sweet heart'

-A A +A

At the White Rock Senior Center members and guests are always greeted with a cup of coffee and a treat.
This simple act of hospitality sets the tone for that person’s experience in the center.
Those who visit can enjoy their snack in the chat room with 621 other members and guests that frequented the 283 square foot space last year. That equals 5,241 times.
In 2010 the WRSC had a total of 7,923 activity visits in the social event category, which includes members and guests. Two hundred fifty one members also visited the WRSC to exercise 3,807 times in 2010.
The center began serving seniors in 1994. A handful of interested residents saw a need and filled it. They called themselves the “Prime Timers.” Mary Venable was the spark that energized and organized these volunteers into a work force. With only two rooms in the credit union building that was built in the 70’s, they created a social center offering programs and a purpose where there was none before. Since 2000 the Los Alamos Retired and Senior Organization volunteer governing board has contracted with Los Alamos County to run the White Rock Senior Center as well as the Betty Ehart Senior Center. Here are some facts:
White Rock currently has 1,038 registered members.
Locally, the trend since 2000 has been an increase in the 45-65 age range.
