None of the activities will be funded by the senior millage because the center has been downgraded to a Level 1 facility. Read more

A Quote about Aging

"A test of a people is how it behaves toward the old. It is easy to love children. Even tyrants and dictators make a point of being fond of children. But the affection and care for the old, the incurable, the helpless are the true gold mines of a culture." - Abraham J. Heschel
