April opening set for Sturgis senior center

Representatives from the St. Joseph County Commission on Aging will open the new Sturgis senior citizen center on April 8.
Lynn Coursey, COA executive director, said the event is being planned in conjunction with Sturgis Area Chamber of Commerce and will include a ribbon cutting at 5 p. m., followed at 7 p.m. by a ticketed event that serves as a fundraiser to help outfit the $2.6 million facility.
Coursey said the COA will begin offering services there – including its congregate meals program and senior activities – on April 11. The center, financed by St. Joseph County with delinquent-tax-fund assets, will replace Paul Casault Center, a smaller facility on Sturgis’ northwest side that COA has rented for decades.
The Casault Center has been sold. COA has continued to rent the site on a month-to-month basis until the new facility is completed.
