Senior Center

NEW GRASS LAKE SENIOR CENTER WILL RESPOND TO COMMUNITY NEEDS 

Now Open Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. 

Seeking to better meet the needs ofGrass Lake's older adults and their families, a core group of area residents and leaders have partnered with the Chelsea Senior Center (CSC) to launch a new senior center in Grass Lake in March. The center, which will be located in the Grass Lake Charter Township Hall, will deliver quality programs and services for seniors in the Grass Lake area in conjunction with the CSC.

The Steering Committee formed to launch the new center is comprised of civic leaders in Grass Lake board members from the Copper Nail, members of the Grass Lake Community Wellness Initiative (CLCWl), and representatives from the Chelsea Senior Center Board and staff. The Steering Committee has been meeting regularly to work out logistics of funding, programming, and marketing to date. The Copper Nail, a community non-profit resale shop dedicated to providing financial support to non-profit organizations in the Grass Lake area, has committed S10,000 in startup funding. Additionally, GLCWI committed $5,000 as part of its 5 HealthyTowns initiative. The Grass Lake Downtown Development Authority (DDA) has also contributed $2,500 for startup funding with an additional $2,500 for the second year of operations. Grass Lake Charter Township will provide rent-free space at the township hall to house the Grass Lake Senior Center programs.

Initially, programs at the Grass Lake Senior Center will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from
10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. w
ith offerings such as exercise, bingo. cards and games. Wii sports, computer/tech support and monthly lunch and learn speakers. Doors will open Tuesday, March 24 at 10 a.m. with a grand opening and ribbon cutting slated for Thursday, April 23 at 9:30 a.m.

Jovce Sager, a Grass Lake resident and Steering Committee member has been a leading champion of this project. "I'm very proud to bea part of the group getting the Grass Lake Senior Center started in Grass Lake," she said. “Iknow that when my mother became a widow there was not a social center for her to go to that would help fill the void of being alone.The creation of our center will allow
individual
s and couples to reunite with friends and keep active while meeting and making new friends, Our whole goal is to keep the 50+ folks young at heart and excited to get out of the house." 

The Chelsea Senior Center Board of Directors approved this partnership at its November 2014
m
eeting. According to Jim Alford, current Chelsea Senior Center Board President, “Helping Grass
Lake develop a senior center is an expansion of our mission. We have a terrific senior center here in Chelsea and we want to share our expertise and talent with members of the Grass Lake community," he said.

Currently the Chelsea Senior Center supports nearly 800 active members and provides programming Monday through Friday' from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The annual membership rate will stay at $25 per year for both senior centers. With this partnership, seniors in both communities can enjoy dual membership and participate inprograms offered at either site. TheChelsea Senior Center staff willoversee all administrative and program management for both sites, and act as fiduciary. "The partnership between Chelsea and Grass Lake is a wonderful model of resource sharing and partnership that makes Grass Lake senior programming a reality", says Matt Pegouskie, Community Resource Manager for the Chelsea-Area Wellness Foundation.

The Grass Lake senior center is looking for volunteers to help make the center a success. Please
