To the Editor:
Newtown Senior Center Director, Marilyn Place, thank you for all you have done and are doing for our seniors. In the many years I have known you, you have always been looking out for the members of our center. Many years ago, I became involved in the center to accompany my mother on your many interesting trips. Then I became involved in projects, activities, updating the center, the first Fairfield Hills Committee, nine years on the Commission of Aging, member of Triad, etc. all of which have been very rewarding. Now I'm enjoying the benefits of Tai Chi.
Marilyn, thank you for your hard work, creative use of the center, stretching the dollar to the fullest, listening to us, keeping us safe, and always looking for creative activities to stimulate our minds. May you continue to be our leader for a very long time.
