After months of waiting, members of the Wyoming Senior Center were treated to an afternoon open house of their newly remodeled Community Room featuring new tables, chairs, lighting and a state of the art electronics system.
Wyoming Senior Center Director Molly Remenap recognized the accomplishment with thanks to the Wyoming Senior Fellowship Club and its president, Dan Kotrch.
“Since 1977 the Wyoming Senior Fellowship Club has had a long-standing relationship with the Senior Center. Thanks to their efforts and the leadership of President Dan Kotrch, they’ve donated $69,000 to the center,” Remenap says.
“This renovation will allow for more community-wide events to take place here, such as class reunions and wedding receptions.” Remenap was quick to assure the group that expanding the facility to the use of the community will not conflict with the Senior Center’s programs already in place.
“We believe in providing the best to our senior community,” Mayor Jack Poll told the room full of supporters. “We know this building will be cared for because it’s your own.”
For long-time Wyoming residents Scott and Kathy Maynard, the Grand-reopening of the Community Room was just the incentive they needed to stop by and check the Senior Center out. “This is wonderful! It’s a good thing for the community,” says Kathy, adding, “I think we are finally going to become members!”
Although the couple winters in Texas, they agree the Wyoming Senior Center has a lot to offer them the rest of the time they spend here. “This is just what we need to meet new people, get involved and stay active! It offers socializing like you would find with a church community – every one always needs that,” she says.
