Center History


The Senior Center was built in 1974.  The County Community Center was built to be the Senior Center.  Instead they decided to build a separate Senior Center.  The money for the Senior Center came from three sources.  They are the Joslyn Foundation, San Diego County, and members of the Fallbrook Senior Center.  Today the building is owned by the Fallbrook Senior Center according to County records.

The Executive Directors since 1994 have been Larry Rutan, Irene Flores, Virginia Cooke, Phyllis Sweeney, and Susie Gonsalves

The Fallbrook Senior Center was originally called The Joslyn Senior Center.  Joe Fahey, when he was president, had the name changed to Fallbrook Senior Center because the Joslyn Foundation stopped giving us money and it was too confusing to people looking for our Senior Center.
