As always, there’s a lot going on at the Lincoln County Senior Center.
Director Kathryn Saine recently talked about this, including plans for a new senior center.
“The new senior center is in full bloom,” said Saine. “Construction continues on the building, and I’m happy to say that we are still on target for a completion date of Aug. 29. Demolition and plumbing are completed. Electrical is under way, and the steel framing for the walls is beginning to go up. Next up will be drywall. I have put up a progress board with pictures in the multi-purpose room, so everyone can see the transformation. I really want everyone to feel like they are a part of this process.
“I am also going to host a second building meeting,” she added, “so I can bring everyone up to date on these exciting developments. I have multiple samples of the materials and fabrics that will be going into each space that I can’t wait to share with you. I will be setting a time and date for this meeting very shortly, and I will communicate it with everyone so we can have a big turnout!”
In other news, the Older American Celebration will be held May 31, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., at Betty Ross Park at 800 S. Madison St. in Lincolnton. Admission is $3 each, due by May 17 at the senior center. The event is being held as the culmination of Older Americans Month. It will feature food, entertainment and games.
And in observance of Memorial Day, the senior center will be closed May 27.
The bluegrass jams continue to be popular at the senior center. Local bluegrass musicians meet in multi-purpose room every Tuesday, 10-11 a.m.
