I live in Red Bank. For years, we had two senior citizen programs in Red Bank, and the use of the new "Civic Center" has been a problem for both of them. One of them just gave up and disbanded an organization that had existed for at least 30 years.
The commission should find a little money for these folks, so that they could have sufficient insurance for the use of the building. I suspect that it's not much. The commission better hurry, before we lose this group too.
For several years, a couple of my elderly neighbors have spent their day on their sun porch, doing jigsaw and crossword puzzles. A month or so ago, I noticed that one of the white haired ladies was missing.
Yesterday, I called Ruth Jeno, former Red Bank commissioner and founder of the senior citizens group. I gave her the name and address, and Ruth went by yesterday afternoon to invite the remaining lady to the senior citizen center. That program will greatly improve the quality of this elderly lady's life.
She starts going to the center on Monday. If she can't drive, transportation is provided by other members.
