Come out May 1 voice you feelings about the Senior Center project. Eckersley Hall that has been in the works for over 2 years and which has already been purchased or the secret smaller design in the works by Mayor Dan Drew being unveiled May 1. More information here: http://www.middletowninsider.com/2012/04/mayor-drews-design-of-senior-center.html
What are the reasons for moving the Senior Center out of Sbona Towers & move to Eckersley Hall?
Reasons to stick with the Eckersley Hall Renovation: If the proposed
Senior Center to an addition to Middletown City Hall they will lose Senior
Haircut, Cookouts and other special dinner events. Ceramics, Line
dancing, oil painting, first Wednesday entertainment, and free senior
breakfast could be lost. Programs such as bingo, exercise, hot lunch if
there is no kitchen, "this is for some the only nutritious meal they get

city who have paid taxes their entire lives and deserve a place to call
their own with adjacent parking that is accessible, unlike that at the
City Hall site. Seniors were promised 40 years ago that the current
senior center would be temporary. Well it is time to make good on that
promise and give the seniors a place to call their own.
