LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Reader gives thanks for senior center

First of all I have really appreciated the feature stories Judy Halone wrote, especially those regarding senior citizens. I wish her well in her new endeavors.

I’m impressed with the programs available at the Bonney Lake senior center. Their newsletter is informative and entertaining to read. I particularly enjoy keeping up with the progress of the Wii bowling team. It’s a great way for seniors to stay active and fit, along with the walking group. Staff does a great job with creating a program that is interesting, fun and healthy.

The senior board works hard at recruiting volunteers and fundraising to help offset the costs of the many programs offered at the center.

One only has to view the photos on the Community Click page of this paper showing senior trips to Montana, Spokane and fishing trips to see how much the seniors enjoy these activities. On July 14, Dennis Lynch, president of the Bonney Lake Area Senior Center Advisory Board, represented approximately 20 senior citizens in attendance at the council meeting to thank the city for their support of the senior center and their activities.

The seniors I’m acquainted with thoroughly enjoy the trips, meals, services and staff. The senior center serves a great purpose in Bonney Lake. Keep up the good work!
