THE SCOOP is our monthly newsletter and program guide. THE SCOOP is where you’ll find detailed information regarding all that is going on at the Center for Active Living including a complete program listing and lunch menu.


We proudly serve home-cooked lunch Tuesdays – Fridays.  Lunch is provided Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays for dine-in and on Wednesdays as a boxed lunch for pick-up to be eaten at the center or drive thru to take out.  A limited number of meals are provided Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday for delivery by our volunteers or for pick-up based on advance request and inability to come into the center for a meal. Our in-house chef works to provide the very best in both variety and quality of meals. A meal donation of $5.00 is suggested. Periodically throughout the year, there are special lunches that are slightly more expensive and may require reservations be made further in advance. To enjoy one of our lunches, a reservation is required by the Friday prior to the week you desire a meal(s).  To make a reservation, call the Center (207-363-1036), Monday -Friday, 9:00am – 4:00pm (please do not call during lunch time, 11:30am-1:00pm).

We provide a café in the dining room with coffee/tea/hot chocolate and muffins free of charge, Monday – Friday, 9:00-11:00am. This is a great opportunity to socialize and meet other people. Just drop-in, no reservation needed.
