SENIOR CENTER MARCH ACTIVITES
The Senior Center is working on renovations in our new building at 623 Edison Street and is in need of volunteers to assist with multiple labor tasks. If you would like help, please call the center at 715 350 4388 and leave a message for Judy Turney. She is in charge of coordinating the labor schedule and will return your call.
As we make plans for renovation of our new larger home on Edison Street, we would like to know what new activities the community would like to see offered. Suggestions can be for daily, weekly, monthly, one-time events, evening or weekend activities. Visit or call the Center with your ideas.
We also need more volunteers to host activities. Let us know if you are interested by calling the Center. New hosting assignments will begin when we move into our new home. We will train you.
