Construction of an addition to the Center that will provide 1400 square feet of new space has begun and completion is expected by the end of winter.
The new space will include a new craft room with sink and cabinets, more office space for volunteers and center coordinator, and a multipurpose recreation lounge. As part of this effort, the Town has agreed to install new exterior doors, flooring and an audio visual system in our large multi-use room, improve exterior security lighting and resurface the parking lot.
These improvements, which will greatly enhance the size, variety and utility of the existing facility, will enable enhancement of programs available to our seniors and to other community groups who currently use the Center.
It is expected that the expansion will be funded by a State grant of $200,000 obtained in 2017, $100,000 from available Seniors funds, and funding made available by the Town. Furnishing the new space will be funded by about $25,000 available in other Seniors funds.
