Due to Covid-19 the Clearlake Senior Center is offering limited services, such as Meals on Wheels (see below) drive-up commodities distribution, etc. To find out what they are at any particular time, please call our office during business hours at the phone number above, or visit our Facebook link on this page.
We also are looking for a volunteer webmaster, with a requirement to know WordPress, and until such time as we find one, this website will not be updated.
We will continue to deliver our meals on wheels just in a different way. We will have pickup meals at the back for those dining room clients that still would like a hot meal.
Burger ‘N Beer on March 20th (see below) is being postponed for awhile, we’ll let you know when it’s rescheduled.
We’ll also let you know, as quickly as possible, about any changes to our schedule because of Covid-19. BTW, Schwan’s and BevMo deliver (and Schwan’s takes EBT). So you don’t have to leave your house for pizza and beer!
Looking for website help:
We’re looking for help from someone to post our monthly documents (Newsletter, Menu, Activities Schedule, Board Meeting Notes, etc.) and occasionally update the home page with events and announcements.
We will provide paid training (estimate 8 hours) in WordPress, and after training, the posting of docs should only take a couple of hours a month, at the beginning of the month. Benefits include: amazing your friends and neighbors by your knowledge of how to build professional websites quickly and inexpensively, earning extra money easily from home with no expense other than your internet connection, knowing how to post quickly, safely and easily to social media, how to protect your privacy, etc. etc. etc.
Web Rebranding Done–
Our Internet rebranding (an ongoing project that will include signage, etc.) is done. You can now get here by using clearlakeseniors.org or clearlakeseniorcenter.org. Although once know as the Highlands Center, we’ve found Clearlake Senior Center is much easier to remember for all our clients.
Burger ‘N Beer
National Margarita Day!
On December 31, the Clearlake Senior Center had an exciting Mystery Dinner with performances from John Tomlinson’s New Vintage Productions’ actors. The Highlight of the night was when Brock Falkenberg, Konicti School District Superintended, ended up with a dead body in his lap!
Laughter, clapping and great food made for a Happy New Year’s for all. Dinner was provided by the Clearlake Senior Center’s own Chatter Box Catering.

Possible Power Outages
From Lake County News (lakeconews.com) regarding the possible PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoff that will begin Saturday, October 26th in the afternoon:
Lake County facing another wide-ranging power shutoff; power could be off for several days
LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – Pacific Gas and Electric Co. is notifying customers across Lake County of another potential public safety power shutoff that could start this weekend, with the sheriff warning it could impact as many people – but last longer – than the Oct. 9 event.
PG&E is reporting that Lake County and many other counties across the region are under an elevated watch for a shutoff from Saturday through Monday.
A map of the potential outage area shows that most of Lake County will be impacted.
The news comes as the National Weather Service placed Lake County and a large swath of Northern California under high wind and fire weather watches.
The high wind watch is in effect for Lake County from 11 p.m. Saturday through 11 p.m. Sunday, and the fire weather watch is in effect from 11 a.m. Saturday through 5 p.m. Monday.
There will be three community resource centers in Lake County available to provide water, phone charging stations, air-conditioned seating for up to 100 people and restrooms.
PG&E said Konocti Vista Casino, 2755 Mission Rancheria Road in Lakeport, and Twin Pine Casino & Hotel, 22223 Highway 29 in Middletown, will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. during the outage.
Separately, Clearlake Mayor Russ Cremer said the Clearlake Senior/Community Center will be open and available to residents as a community resource center beginning on Sunday morning. It’s located at 3245 Bowers Ave. Clearlake.
From Lake County News (lakeconews.com) regarding the possible PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoff that may begin Wednesday, October 9th in the early morning:
For the public at large, a customer resource center will be open and operational on Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Clearlake Senior Center, located at 3245 Bowers Ave. in Clearlake, PG&E said.
At a Clearlake City Council meeting last month, City Manager Alan Flora reported that the city had entered into a contract with PG&E to use the senior center as the community resource center, the only locaity for such a facility confirmed in Lake County so far.
Flora said the center will provide water, information, electronic device charging and WiFi capability but no food or other services. PG&E is to staff the center exclusively and provide security.
Poster from our last-held, very successful event:
Welcome to the new website for Highland Senior Service Center: 707-994-3051, 3245 Bowers Ave, Clearlake, California 95422.
We hope this will help us serve you better and make it easier for our staff to advertise and promote our activities, and get more of you to our meals and functions, which will help everyone to lead healthier, safer and more enjoyable lives.
BTW, we’ll be trying different themes for a while while we search for a more permanent “look.”
We also need to post additional content, create a form to be emailed our newsletter, install a better activities list with contact information for our instructors, and a sales app that will let you purchase tickets to events online, etc. although we will be rolling out these services over time, because we’re seniors, too!
Please help us build a better site by registering, and with your suggestions, and please donate if you can, just a few dollars really helps, using our secure, “Squareup” donation form.
BTW, this post, aka “Home,” will always show the latest content and announcements at the top. So, when you visit, above is the latest stuff our clients, volunteers and staff think is interesting and important.
Register, and be able to post even more stuff yourself, like our fun and successful end of March Mardi-Gras dinner:
