City Thankful For Senior Center Donations

Thanks to donations that continue to roll in, the Wabash County Senior Citizens Center now has enough resources to remain open through at least mid-May. At Monday’s City Council meeting, Wabash County Ministerial Alliance President Kevin McGinnis presented a $1,000 check to the senior center. Senior Citizens Commissioner Joe Judge said last week’s chili supper brought in more than $11,400 in donations and table sponsorships. Also, the VFW Auxilliary chipped in $900 from bingo last Friday night, Heartland Worship Center gave $1,000, and St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church has pledged $3,000 a month for the next three months to help the senior center. Judge said every donation is appreciated…

Judge said the senior center also recently received a donation of a chest freezer to replace one that failed and caused the center to store its’ frozen food at various locations around town.
