The Slater Senior Center is scheduled to close Monday. The closure was announced earlier this month and is a result of low numbers. The center has only been serving 4-10 patrons per day, causing Care Connection to make the decision.
According to County Services Director Cathy Tyre many services will still be provided to elderly members of the community, including the home-delivery program. All current patrons of the center will be eligible for the service. However, community support will be necessary to keep it running.
Anyone with questions can contact the center at (660) 886-9888.
