Hope Village will serve as a gathering place seniors as part of an expansion of the Grand Traverse County Senior Center Network. The network has provided programs for adults 50 and over throughout the county, with active sites in Interlochen and Kingsley. This spring the Network expanded into Fife Lake and Acme. By providing space and staff support, Hope Village will enhance the offerings provided to seniors on the east side of Grand Traverse County.
“We are delighted to partner with the Network in providing this wonderful programming to not only our residents, but to other area seniors,” said Cathy Stathakis, Hope Village manager.
Starting next week, Sharon Neumann of the Senior Center staff will be at Hope Village every Monday morning from 9 to 10 a.m. to answer questions and recruit interested volunteers. Programming has started with a painting class by renowned watercolor artist and teacher Charles Murphy. An open house will be held at Hope Village on Monday, May 21, at 2 p.m. to introduce staff, programs, and future plans. For reservations, call the Network at (231) 922-4911.
