I would like to thank everyone who helped save Glenridge Senior Center. This center is an asset to the area.
According to the reports Council Woman Diana Reyna helped secure funds to keep the center open. Thank you very much. Thank you also to Assemblywoman Catherine Nolan and Assemblyman Michael Miller for writing a letter to Lillian Barrios Paoli, the Commissioner of the Department for the Aging, urging her to reconsider pulling funding to them.
This center is very close to my heart. My Uncle Eddie, who passed away in 2005, spent many years going to this center. When he could drive he delivered Meals On Wheels for them. When he couldn't drive anymore he helped prepare the meals for them in the center's kitchen. He also served on the Advisory Board for the center.
He made many friends there and had much enjoyment there in his last years. Thank you for saving the center that gave him so much joy.
