SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Saratoga Senior Center’s new space at 290 West Ave., Saratoga Springs was unveiled Sept. 12 with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. Adjacent to the Saratoga Branch of the YMCA, the space covers more than 14,000 square feet, and will allow for increased programming for Seniors in Saratoga County.

The Dake Family and Stewarts Shops made a $3 million charitable gift that will allow the Saratoga Senior Center to co-exist on the Saratoga YMCA campus rent-free for 30 years.

“The seniors in our community are the backbone of what makes Saratoga such a great place to live, raise families and age,” says Lois Celeste, Executive Director. “We offer everything from dinners and trips to art classes, technology assistance, exercise classes, support for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s families, as well as a comfortable community center to socialize, make new friends and stay active. We encourage everyone to come and see what we do, try a new class or take a local or long-distance trip.”

Donations to the Saratoga Senior Center can be made online at or by mailing a check to the center at 290 West Ave. Suite 1, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866. For more information about the Saratoga Senior Center or to volunteer visit or call 518-584-1621.
