A year ago in November, concerned citizens banded together to form a new Board of Directors to lead the Spring Green Area Senior Citizen Center on a new path. Now known as the Spring Green Community Center, much has been accomplished to expand the scope of the organization. Now open to community members of all ages, the Spring Green Community Center wishes to open its building at 117 S. Washington St. for private parties, rentals and community involvement.
The first item on the agenda for the new Board was to provide noon meals to our area seniors. After the ADRC discontinued providing meals to the area seniors, the current Board sought out places where seniors could get a hot meal at a reasonable price. Rumbleseats graciously provides a hot meal on Thursday and Friday of each week and Greenway Manor and The Terrace each take another day. The community is invited to a potluck meal at noon the Tuesday of the month.
The center has already had several entertaining events open to the public and we intend to have more. In addition to entertainment, we hope to sponsor some educational forums and speakers. Thanks to a generous donation and enthusiastic volunteers, the entire interior of the building has been cleaned and painted. We invite everyone to our Open House Dec. 7 and 8. Entertainment will be available every hour on the hour starting at 10 a.m. Dec. 7 and 11 a.m. Dec. 8. Featured guests include Bruce Bradley, Hank Dedrick, Cecelia Farran, Ted and Abigail Swetz and musicians the Foggybottom Boys and the Ukulele Group. We hope everyone will feel welcome to check us out and partake in some holiday refreshments.
