Senior Services held the Topping Out Ceremony for its Intergenerational Center for Arts and Wellness Friday, March 24. Elected officials, organizational collaborators, Senior Services volunteers, staff, and supporters marked a significant construction milestone by signing their names and leaving encouraging messages on the building’s last structural beam before it was hoisted into place. The project’s next phase will begin with building out the 62,500-square-foot facility that will serve as a hub for health services, artistic activities, and intergenerational programming provided by twenty-one local collaborating organizations.
The project was conceived over four years ago after Senior Services conducted a county-wide study to better understand the growing needs of the community’s expanding population of seniors and the proven benefits of intergenerational engagement for all people involved.
The Intergenerational Center for Arts and Wellness is on schedule to open its doors to the public in the fall of this year. For more information about the Intergenerational Center for Arts and Wellness visit ccc.seniorservicesinc.org.
