It’s that time of year again when
we ask that you make a
donation to assist our Center in
achieving a goal for a
particular purpose. Due to
COVID, our donations have
been very few and far
between. This year we are
raising money to update our media needs and
purchase some additional items to use for our
programs. A Bakeless Bake Sale is an easy,
painless way for you to donate to our Center
without all the fuss and mess of baking. Please
use the envelope provided in this newsletter
and send a check for any amount you choose.
We would like to thank you in advance for your
support of our Senior Center, it is greatly


We have a very generous donor who has
donated the funds for another beautiful
addition to our Walking Trail. There will be a
United States flag and a Michigan State flag
flying high in this area and in the spring a
bench for you to sit and relax. There is also an
opportunity for you to celebrate the life of
someone by purchasing a brick to be placed
on the walk around this wonderful addition to
our facility. Remember a loved one who
brought light to your life, a friend or your
grandchildren. The purchase of a brick will
forever honor or memorialize your loved ones.
The profits from this project will assist in
maintaining the Priscilla Upton Byrns Walking
Trail and Gardens.
