Joslyn Center reopens after $900,000 facelift

Alhambra's Joslyn Senior Center officially reopened to the public last Wednesday after a $900,000 renovation, which included improved disability accessibility, new landscaping, and building upgrades. New landscaping at the Joslyn CenterThe center, located in Story Park, is the focal point for Alhambra’s senior programs, providing social services, recreational activities, and a daily lunch program.

“Alhambra has a strong senior program and seniors from other communities come here,"  Alhambra City Manager Julio Fuentes said at the ribbon cutting ceremony last Wednesday. "We have the Cadillac program in the area.”

An overflow crowd of more than 100 attended the ribbon cutting ceremony and health fair and also had an opportunity to tour the facility.

Funded primarily by three grants, the largest of which was $663,000 in federal stimulus funding for energy conservation improvements, the additional improvements also feature a “cool roof” designed to keep the building cool in the summer and warm in the winter, new energy efficient windows and doors, and a new heating/cooling system.

Alhambra Director of Community Services Cynthia Jarvis said the center serves 60 to 100 seniors daily. An additional 50 community members utilize the center on a daily basis for other activities such as Weight Watchers meetings and adult center classes.
