It’s that time again for this annual fundraiser. This year we are raising money for new programs and improvements to some old ones. 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 the October 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 appreciated!


Erica Mauerman has donated the funds for another beautiful addition to our Walking Trail. There is an United States flag and a Michigan State flag flying high in this area along with 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.
