KALKASKA – After nearly five months of being displaced from their usual home, the staff and supporters of the Kalkaska County Commission on Aging celebrated being back home at the newly remodeled Kalkaska Senior Center with an open house Tuesday, June 19.

The $1.5-million project to remodel and upgrade the facilities at the senior center on Coral Street started in November, with the KCCOA having to hold programs at the Kalkaska Civic Center. That was until May 7, when the senior agency was able to move back in the KSC.

And, that was a cause for celebration last Tuesday.

“It was an open house format, where our guests could come and go as they pleased,” said KCCOA Director Jodi Willison. “The COA staff and Advisory Board members gave tours.

“We had over 250 attending throughout the evening,” Willison added. “I was very excited about the turnout and am very proud of the building and all that was accomplished.”

Most of those who’ve viewed the project seem impressed.

“Positively,” she said. “They are enjoying the changes, loving what they are seeing.”

According to Willison, some of the comments heard by KCCOA staff and board members were that they appreciated the more open feel to the building, the color selection and how it seemed to be easier to move around the facility.
