Service Center moving forward with new mission

The Canyon Service Center, 844 S First St., Mill City has a new plan for the coming year and a new Board of Directors at the helm. 

New activities and programs will come on line in August. Events are being developed for health and safety classes under a program called Wellness After 50. It includes personal enrichment classes, social events, and regional outings. The Saturday open houses have been discontinued because of a lack of attendance. The CSC still offers pinochle most weeks and Bunco monthly.

The Center continues to lend medical equipment to area residents; though they are in need of more donated wheelchairs. The CSC also will host a table at Kimmel Park July 4 for a fundraiser for VetCare veterans support organization.

The new Board of Directors includes Joanne Olson, president; Gary Olson, vice-president; Carl Henriksen, secretary; Jim Soll, treasurer; Sandra Cooper, returning director; Opal Walker, returning director; Kathleen De Garmo, new director; and Jeff De Garmo, new director.
