“Let Your Voice Be Heard!” invitation heralds major adjustments concerning Kane County seniors

Following the April 14 meeting attended by some thirty or so Long Valley locals in the North Kane County Events Center, flanked by Commissioner Brent Chamberlain and Jerica Bauer, Director of the Senior Centers, as well as Care & Share, the evening’s moderator, Commissioner Wade Heaton assessed the situation. “I think the biggest thing is that the Valley Senior Center hasn’t been utilized much in the last two or three years. And we didn’t want to close it; but we just wanted to gauge the interest. That’s when the commissioners just started talking about it. And just said, ‘Hey, let’s have a little visit with everybody. See how many people we can get out, and hear from the seniors.’ Because if people will come and utilize it, the funding is there; the program is there. We’ve got people willing to come out and help with it. We want it to happen.”
