Alexandria Senior Center

Alexandria's Senior Center at 414 Hawthorne Street.

The Alexandria Senior Center welcomes back its members with a performance by one of its favorite musicians, Mikko Cowdery, who will perform on March 18, at 2:00 PM.  Seating for the live music will be at a limited capacity, due to COVID restrictions.

Mikko last performed at the Center on Sunday, March 15, 2020, the day before the Senior Center temporarily shut its doors due to the pandemic mitigations.  “We are thrilled to have Mikko back here performing,” noted Executive Director, Nancy Haggenmiller.  “How appropriate that it is Mikko who will be the first performance as we start to slowly bring back our activities and events.”  

The Center reopened its doors on February 1, 2021 and is slowly increasing the amount of activities, programs and services they offer with limited capacity.  Several new protocols are required for staff and participants to minimize the transmission of the COVID-19 virus.

All who enter must wear face masks and follow proper hand hygiene and social distancing.  Protocols are in place and will be communicated to all prior to entering and posted throughout the building.

The Alexandria Senior Center was established over 40 years ago as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides social, educational, nutritional and informational services to adults aged 50 and over.  The Center temporarily closed March 16, 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, reopened again on October 1, 2020 and closed again on November 20, 2020 due to increased COVID cases in Douglas County.  They have remained open since February 1, 2021.
