SOWEGA Council on Aging leaders celebrated
their successes and talked about the challenges they faced this year.
The Council held its annual meeting Thursday
afternoon. They had to deal with funding cuts based on new census numbers and
because of sequestration, but they're excited that the long-awaited new senior
center is almost ready to open.
"Many times people do
not realize the services that the SOWEGA council on aging offers until they
need a service, so when you come to a meeting like this, you get to hear many
of the services that people don't always recognize," said Debbie Blanton,
SOWEGA Council of Aging.
