LEEDS — The City of Leeds received $10,000 for their Senior Center at the Leed’s City Council meeting on Monday, October 4.
Mayor David Miller presented a $10,000 check to Ms. Audrey Bryan, Director of Leeds Senior Center. The check was given to the City by the Jefferson County Commission at the Leeds mayor’s request and will be used as part of the ongoing upgrade program at the Senior Center.
The City of Leeds took advantage of the time closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic to begin a major renovation to the area used by the City’s seniors. Leeds Senior Center’s footprint was enlarged, and to date, the large multi-purpose room has received new paint and flooring along with new tables and chairs. This area is used for exercise three times a week and where lunch is served Monday thru Thursday. Other areas in the Center also received new paint and floors and are just waiting for new furniture to provide cheerful and homey places perfect for reading, chatting with friends, etc. Purchasing furniture is just one way a portion of the money will be spent.
Since reopening in June of this year, the Senior Center has continued to expand its program, creating an environment and schedule that provides opportunities for friendship, exercise, lunch, creative arts, and games. So, if you are a senior adult age 60 or above, plan to join the Leeds Senior Center. There’s always room for one more.
Leeds Senior Center is located in the Leeds Civic Center at 1000 Park Drive. For more information about senior programs and scheduled activities, please visit www.leedsalabama.org/senior-services/ or call (205) 699-0910.
