    I can’t find contact information on the web for “Eddie Hoffman Senior Center. Could you please provide this information:

    Mailing address, phone, fax #, Point of Contact/Name of Director, e-mail?

  2. 2 vuee 2008 March 5 at 7:48 pm

    It is not widely publicized, alas. The email used to be with the city, but I don’t what it might be now. There is no web site. The best bet might be to call them.

    Senior services have been transferred to Orutsararmiut Native Council.
