Murray Senior Recreation Center
The Murray Senior Recreation Center is a recreation center for adults age 55+. The Center offers recreation and leisure-time activities, social services, nutritious meals, and educational, instructional and cultural programs for the general health and well-being of senior adults. There is no membership fee, but some activities have charges to offset the cost. A complete schedule of activities and fees is located in the monthly newsletter.
The Center is funded and operated by Murray City. Operations of the Center are directed by the Center Director, Director of Parks and Recreation, and the Murray City Administration, with the Murray City Council responsible for establishing policy.
** There will be no lunch available at the Center on Tuesday, November 3. **
OFFICE CLOSURES: The Center will be closed for Thanksgiving on Thursday, November 26, and Friday, November 27; and Christmas Day, Friday, December 25.

BOX LUNCHES: $4 Box Lunches for those 55+ on Monday through Friday. Please call us at 801-264-2635 between 8:00-4:00 the day prior to order your box lunch. Payment can be made over the phone with your credit/debit card. We need prior notification so the kitchen can adequately prepare your order.

CAR BINGO: Due to popular demand, we are extending 55+ Car Bingo every Wednesday through December at 1:00 until 2:30. There will be reserved parking for the first 20 cars ... call 801-264-2635 to reserve your spot today. Maximum two people per car (should live in the same household). We are providing the bingo cards and prizes (four games will be played). Please bring a marker, pen or pencil to mark your bingo card and a mask to wear while interacting with our staff from your car. When you arrive, check-in with the parking lot attendant and they will direct you to your reserved parking spot. We are only allowing those that have preregistered via telephone for the car bingo. The building is closed to the public so there is no restroom access and we ask that everyone remain in their cars. Murray City has an ordinance against car engines idling - cars cannot be running while we play bingo so plan accordingly and don't forget your water and blankets.
Grief Support Class via Zoom. Jody, a Chaplain from Rocky Mountain Hospice, will discuss ways to process grief. The group meets twice a month via Zoom. Please contact Moe at 801-284-4240 if you are interested in participating.
Personal Training: The virtual personal training program will begin again in January. Watch our webpage in the middle of December for dates and more information.
We have been hard at work on planning more virtual classes. Please stay-tuned for more information. We are also working on obtaining iPads that may be checked out and used to access our classes. In addition, Salt Lake County Aging Services has created a “Virtual Senior Center.” These classes are available to all Salt Lake County residents over age 60. Please visit their website: https://slco.org/aging-adult-services/virtual-senior-center/
MISCELLANEOUS: Our Summer walking club to Portland was a success. We want to give you an opportunity to continue walking by offering a Winter Walking to Laughlin. Our goal is to “walk” to Laughlin, Nevada–which is 512 miles from the Center. The cost of the winter program is $5 and starts November 1. You will receive a pedometer and monthly calendars. Calendars are emailed out and printed copies are available in our front vestibule. Prizes await those who make it to Laughlin by the end of March. Call to register now.
The Murray Senior Recreation Center will be closed as of Friday, March 13, 2020 until further notice due to coronavirus concerns.
We will continue to keep everyone updated as we receive information. Thanks and please be safe!!
