Seward Lied Center

I continue to "wind-down" my City Council responsibility by attending  my last meeting of the Seward Aging Services Board this evening. The 8-member Board not only serves as the "Senior Center's" Administrative decision makers but also as "Volunteers" for many functions, such as the monthly Potato Bake. They served 193 customers at last month's Bake. Emily is the only employee and she receives a very modest stipend for every thing she does. During the month of October, they served 522 meals, assisted 265 seniors with transportation, offered nutrition information to 31, provided exercise classes to 101 and 16 people were given checks in the Health Clinic. The Center is open 162 hours/month and last month, 865 volunteer hours were logged. It is another of the many things that make Seward, NE a very attractive location for people of all ages.
