The Pleasanton Senior Center is set for a week-long closure toward the end of the month to allow for routine maintenance at the oft-used city facility on Sunol Boulevard.

The shutdown runs from July 24-28, with the Senior Center reopening for regularly scheduled programs on July 31.

During the week, crews will conduct routine cleaning and repair projects necessary to keep the busy community center in good condition for all public uses, city officials said.

Pleasanton Paratransit Services will continue to operate all week long and tickets will be on sale during that time.

The Senior Center's Sage Cafe will be closed that week. City officials recommend the Open Heart Kitchen dinner program at nearby Ridgeview Commons (5200 Case Ave.) as an alternative meal option. That dinner is offered from 4-6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays for a suggested $3 donation, with reservations available by calling 484-5131.

Pleasanton's Senior Center at 5353 Sunol Blvd. offers more than 25 classes each week as well as free movies, a lecture series, a personal technology users group, a Day Trippers program, a Newcomer's Welcome program, walking and bicycling groups, knitting and other activities.

Its paratransit program provides door-to-door shared ride services for eligible Pleasanton and Sunol residents 70 years of age and older and those who are Americans with Disabilities Act certified.

The center also partners with agencies and businesses to provide services that include a weekday lunch program and Meals on Wheels (Spectrum Community Services), health screening and foot care (Senior Support Program of the Tri-Valley), a caregivers' support group, free notary assistance, eye glass repairs, legal assistance (Legal Assistance for Seniors), AARP Mature Drive classes (offered quarterly), a Parkinson's support group and one-on-one computer training.
