Senior Center grateful for support


I am one of many seniors who want to thank Ripinsky Rippers for their very generous donations to Haines Senior Citizens Center, Inc to help keep the Senior Center open. We also appreciate that the group rents the building twice a month for activities.

I am a senior who depends on the convenient and sun-lit open space at the Haines Senior Center where I conduct a well-attended exercise class twice a week and many seniors in town enjoy meals and socialization.

During these trying times when funds for the center are decreasing, we need all the help there is out there to keep the center open. This makes me appreciate all the more the thoughtful gift.
