Senior center transformation underway

While fundraising continues, the Dowagiac Senior Center is one step closer to reality as work began Monday to transform 227 S. Front St.
Dowagiac Senior Center will contain a variety of opportunities for fitness, learning and social support for older adults.
Cass County Council on Aging received a $10,000 matching-funds grant for the building campaign from the Frederick S. Upton Foundation of St. Joseph.
“When you make a gift to the campaign, the donation is doubled with this grant,” said Bob Long, director of development.
“The idea is that we can reach the total of $350,000 sooner.”
For more information on the building project, donations or contributing to the building campaign, call the COA at (269) 445-8110.
The COA in Cassopolis provides services and programs to assist individuals to age and live well with dignity and independence.
