"Your County, Your Center"
Bond County Senior Center broke ground Thursday, June 5 for the Frank and Susan Watson Community Building. Fundraising for the project began last fall. Work on the addition began on Friday, June 6. And now we are serving lunch in our new dining room and hosting the food pantry from the rear of the new wing!
A ceremony and ribbon cutting was held Saturday, November 8, 2014 to dedicate the new Frank & Susan Watson Community Building at the Bond County Senior Center.
Rev. Darryl Bolen, representing the Senior Center Board of Directors, and Anna Oestreich, Senior Center Director, presented a plaque to Susan and Frank Watson honoring their generosity and dedication to senior citizens. Also honored were Bruce and Susan Meyer, who were also significant donors to the project. The community building's dining room is named in honor of Bruce's mother and stepfather, Shirley and Foss Meyer. More honorees included Fred and Craig Baumberger, Duane and Linda and John Flowers as well as all the Bond County Senior Center volunteers and staff.
This addition doubles the space for services and activities, including a full kitchen, large dining room, and food pantry collection/distribution center. The capital campaign has steadily drawn closer to the goal of $650,000. You can still donate to the Bond County Senior Center Capital Campaign any time.
Contributions can be sent to our location at 1001 East Harris Avenue in Greenville, Illinois. For more information, call the Center at 664-1465. We've supported positive aging for Bond County residents (of all ages!) since 1976 and we need your help now.
