Debra Darr recently took over as the executive director for the Whitley County Council of Aging and Aged after former leader Jackie Hake retired at the end of 2013.
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.
