Since 2007, Debra Darr has observed the evolution of Whitley Countyâ€™s senior center and its services.
However, in January, Darr moved from her assistant position with the Whitley County Council on Aging & Aged (WCCOA) to the role of executive director when long-time leader Jackie Hake retired.
â€śIâ€™ve seen a lot of growth in both the amount of seniors that participate and the number of activities and services we provide,â€ť said Darr.
â€śThere is always something going on here at the Woodlands Senior Center.
Iâ€™ve enjoyed getting to know those seniors that come in.â€ť
At the senior center, which is located at 710 Opportunity Dr. in Columbia City, meals are offered Monday through Friday at 11:30 a.m.
Afterwards, participants can take part in card games and other activities.
â€śWe have a lot of special guest speakers and entertainment that joins us during lunch time,â€ť Darr said.
