Center is a county asset

In a few weeks, the Sybene-Chesapeake Senior Center will be relocating.

The center, which has been housed in a modular unit at the Chesapeake Senior Center (the village’s former high school), will move to the first floor of the newly-constructed Proctor’s Landing senior living apartments.

The center has provided a variety of activities to the county’s more seasoned residents, from organizing trips to locations like the Amish Country, to cooking demonstrations and holiday celebrations.

The center’s monthly “Our Day” dinners draw hundreds to First Baptist Church in Proctorville each month, where attendees can enjoy a buffet of food, as well as free entertainment.

Director Darlene Green, who will continue on at the new location, is to be commended for her continuous, hard work in providing a location where seniors can enjoy a sense of comradery and community.

Here’s hoping the center thrives in its new location and will be able to expand its offerings to all the region’s seniors.
