The Chetco Senior Center evolved from a group of folks around the oak dining table of Theora and George Humphries. In the mid-70s it was decided a place was needed for area residents to meet for conversation, activities, card games and lunches. With donations from many interested people, they rented the Little Green Building for their first Center. Volunteers took turns making pots of soup, served with bread each day. Sometimes they were treated to Ruth Daltons famous shortbread. It soon became apparent a larger facility would be needed, so a major fundraising effort was launched. With the most gracious donation from Virginia Manley who purchased the land at 550 Chetco Lane, countless other persons who donated money, sweat, labor and materials, the center was constructed. Today the Center serves hundreds of meals to shut-ins and in our dining room each month. The lounge hosts games of dominoes as well as all types of card games. There is always a jigsaw puzzle in the works to finish and many books to read, check out and purchase. If you want to read a current magazine, just stop in and check around the tables in the lounge.
