On Wednesday, October 5, at 6:00 p.m., the Sweden Town Board will conduct a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Sweden/Clarkson Community Center to celebrate the completion of the new Senior Room Addition at the center. The public is welcome to attend the celebration that will mark the beginning of senior programs in a new location that is more spacious and light.
The new Senior Room is roughly twice as large as the present designated area, is conveniently located next to the main entrance of the Community Center, and has both wheelchair-accessible facilities and a handwashing station. The extension was made possible thanks to a grant under the CARES Act in the amount of $524,440 that was awarded by the New York State Office of Community Renewal.
There is a possibility that Senator Robert Ortt, Assemblyman Steve Hawley, and legislators Jackie Smith and Robert Colby from Monroe County will be present.
“We are excited to open this beautiful new space for our seniors. Our Recreation Department is busy moving existing activities into the room and planning new activities for our seniors to enjoy,” said Sweden Supervisor Kevin Johnson.
