Hartland Senior Center asks Brighton Township for Funding

7/8/14 - The Hartland Senior Center is out to redefine what it means to be a “senior,” and is inviting neighboring townships to become a part of their mission. At Monday night’s Brighton Township board meeting, trustees discussed the possibility of providing up to $7,000 dollars in financial aid to the facility. The center is seeking financial support due to a loss of previous funding and a desire to expand what the facility is able to offer its members. The facility currently has approximately 1,100 non-duplicate members, with approximately two hundred of those being citizens of Brighton Township. The Hartland Senior Center provides a variety of non-traditional, eclectic activities including memoir writing, instruction in jazz and fitness, and crowd favorite pickle ball. The Hartland facility is the largest out of the seven senior centers in Livingston County, and its unique approach draws residents from nearby townships. Any Michigan adult over the age of fifty is eligible to become a member at the center, and there is no additional fee for being a resident outside of Hartland Township. Tyrone, Deerfield and Oceola townships are already providing funding to the facility. (KT/JK)
