After months of delays, the Socorro Senior Center will re-open today, June 1, under the direction of the city of Socorro.

Located at 1410 Ake Ave., the hours will be 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Services provided will include group and home-delivered meals as well as recreation and social opportunities. Home deliveries of meals will also be made to seniors in the Veguita area.

Transportation to and from the senior center itself can be arranged by calling 575-519-5059, but now, Socorro’s city transportation department will handle rides to doctor appointments, grocery stores and pharmacies. To schedule this service, call in advance 575-835-1501.
