Darleen LaFond: Won’t donate to Senior Center until problems addressed

Published: 1/14/2020 2:15:57 PM

I have read with great interest the letters about the sad situation at the Northampton Senior Center. I remember the excitement in our lovely city when the building of a wonderful Senior Center was proposed.

The opportunity to donate was given and many of us did just that. I don’t usually attend the Senior Center, but I have always been interested in the activities there. They have offered interesting movies, card games, lunches an programs to keep us seniors healthy and strong.

What will the Senior Center do without donations of money? What will the monthly newspaper, “The Conz Street Chronicle” do without donations of money?

I have always donated money in the past. But no more. My pocketbook is tightly closed. How many others of us have decided to keep our wallets tightly closed?

Isn’t it about time the mayor paid attention to the people the Senior Center is supposed to serve?

In high hopes for a better Senior Center.
