Morrisville Senior Center begins revitalization process

by June Portnoy

The Morrisville Senior Center, a non-profit organization, is looking for ways to solicit donations and secure funding to improve the appearance of its building.

“We are losing members, and are no longer recruiting many new ones as a result of our center’s appearance,” explains senior center manager, Alan Perchalski. “We need to spruce up this place and make it come alive again. I believe if we can’t make this happen, it could ultimately mean the demise of this senior center.”

As a result, Alan recently established a revitalization committee, consisting of six senior center members, including Marlene Burns, the committee’s volunteer chair who reports to Alan. The purpose of this committee is to consider ways to improve the appearance of this building, which was erected in the mid-1970s and is now owned by the county. The senior center serves 300 members, 55 and older.
