Residents 50 and over will find a wealth of resources and fun at the city-run Margaret Todd Senior Center. The facility is home to a popular banquet hall, countless events and classes for seniors, the Novato Independent Elders Program and the Novato Senior Citizens Club. Nearly every event there -- from dances to health fairs to computer classes to bingo -- is held to encourage seniors to connect with each other. The ballroom, with attached commercial kitchen, is available for rent and is used regularly by service groups such as the Rotary club. The city, which has experienced financial instability in recent years, is struggling to keep the senior center a funding priority. Organizers hope strong attendance at regular gatherings will convince the decision makers to keep the center open.
