Residential Reminders — week of May 27
In-person dining at community centers
On May 5, the Claremont Senior Program announced that after more than two years of serving meals to-go in adherence to pandemic safety protocols, “in-person congregate dining will return to the Joslyn and Blaisdell senior centers this summer.”
In-person meal service will resume Monday, June 6 at the Joslyn center, and on July 18 at the Blaisdell center. The last day of takeout meal service at the Joslyn center will be Wednesday, June 1.
Reservations will be required to dine at the sites to ensure adequate spacing between diners and quality service. Indoor and outdoor seating options will be available.
For more information or to make reservations, contact the Joslyn center at (909) 399-5488 or the Blaisdell center at (909) 399-5367.
Lunch service volunteers
On May 19 the city announced that the Claremont Senior Program will soon be in need of “dedicated volunteers” to serve lunch to the seniors at the Joslyn and Blaisdell senior centers.
“Volunteer assistance will be needed for serving lunch, washing dishes, and light cleaning after lunch service is finished,” the city wrote online. “Most of all, we are seeking volunteers who will make our patrons feel welcome and cared for.”
Lunch is served five days a week and begins at 11:30 a.m. at the Joslyn center and at noon at Blaisdell.
If you are able to volunteer at least one day a week for a couple of hours, contact the Joslyn center at (909) 399-5488 to find out how you can help.
Returning those ballots
Registered voters in California should have received a vote by mail ballot sometime over the past three weeks. As usual, that ballot can be filled out and submitted by mail with no postage necessary; however, it must be postmarked by Election Day, June 7.
Vote-by-mail ballots can be dropped off at ballot drop boxes located near the Claremont Helen Renwick Library, 208 N. Harvard Ave., the Alexander Hughes Community Center, 1700 Danbury Rd., and Taylor Hall, 1775 N. Indian Hill Blvd.
On Saturday in-person voting will commence at Taylor Hall beginning at 10 a.m. and will last until 7 p.m. In-person voting will run daily until June 6. On Election Day, polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
For more information, please contact the City Clerk’s office at (909) 399-5460. On the night of the election real time results can be found at www.lavote.gov.
