Looking Back at the Redmond Senior Center Building
The old Redmond Senior Center (RSC) building demolition was completed in November 2020. As we look forward to a new building project, we want to take some time to recall all the wonderful programs, moments and memories we shared at the RSC.
Please view this video and be sure to click on the links listed below to view the RSC Memory Book and past videos that captured our programs, events, volunteers and participants who made the senior center a warm and place for seniors.
The RSC building comes down to make way for the new Redmond Senior and Community Center (RSCC) building project.
