In a continued effort to support the needs of older adults living within Ela Township, and in compliance with current social distancing guidelines, the Ela 55+ staff has implemented an affordable curbside meal pick up option for Ela 55+ members who would usually enjoy having meals at the Ela Eatery located at the Ela Township Community Center.  The community center chef, Lynn Garrett, has developed a variety of delicious meals that can be enjoyed by members for only $5 a person!  Meals include a main entrée, side dishes, and dessert! All orders must be received by Friday prior to the week of pick up. Please call (847) 438-9160 to place your order. Curbside service is available Monday through Thursday at 11:30 a.m., in the front parking lot of the Ela Township Community Center located at 380 Surryse Road in Lake Zurich.

55+ members can view the monthly menu selections on the Ela Township 55+ Facebook page, or on our website at elatownship.org/seniors.  All meals are handed out cold with reheating instructions listed on the container. Please have exact cash or check made payable to Ela Township 55+ ready in an envelope when you arrive to pick up your order.  If you are interested in becoming a member of Ela 55+ please contact the Ela Township Community Center.  Membership is free to all Ela Township residents 55 and older.

If you are looking for some in home entertainment, the Ela 55+ staff has also developed a YouTube channel!  Search Ela Township Community Center on YouTube, and you will find a range of free and entertaining videos created to keep you moving and smiling while indoors.
