The seniors are still waiting to be able to have their dances, garage sales and other events at the Community and Senior Center, at 360 N. 23rd St. I realize the mayor and the city administrators have city business to attend to. How many times do we seniors have to take the back burner? There are those of us who still do not feel welcome under the present situation of building management.
The city is looking at more space for city offices in maybe a bigger building. I’ve even heard they may want to build a new building. I do hope the city makes plans to move Parks and Recreation out of the present placement in the building that was built and meant to be a Community and Senior Center. The seniors are continuing to age and some even die, yet are denied those events we’ve enjoyed at the senior center in the past. How long will it take city officials to make the Community and Senior Center welcoming and enjoyed by seniors again?
