Ann Arbor seniors, task force consider options under threat of Senior Center closure -

Ann Arbor seniors, task force consider options under threat of Senior Center closure -

The senior population seems to always take the budget cuts. Socialization is an extremely important part of senior health. Elderly people who aren't able, or don't socialize are more likely to suffer from depression, and other illnesses.
How can Ann Arbor be recently called one of the best places to age, and then turn around and think the Senior Center isn't important enough to keep open?

This community is full of retired professors, business owners, grandmothers who have raised a generation, and many others who contributed a great deal to Ann Arbor and it's citizens. What are we giving them for all they have given us?

There are over 45,000 households in Ann Arbor. If each Ann Arbor household could donate $5. one time a year for the Senior Center, they would not only have enough money to stay open, they could expand their activities. I don't know about you, but I pay alot of taxes that go to things I would never pay for, given the choice. Any of us can go without one fancy coffee from Starbuck's, or a combo meal from a fast food restaurant, once a year to give to the elders that paved our way.

This is any town in America at any given time. If this happens in your town, please encourage what I am now encouraging in my town. Lets show our appreciation and respect for our elder populaiton and their needs.

I will be sending my $5.00 today, please join me and encourage your friends and neighbors to do the same. I've added the address below for your convenience.
