A compelling synergy exists between serving as the Senior Center during the day and a community facility for the City of Faribault in the late afternoon, evening and weekend hours, thus providing efficiencies for both entities.
The heart of a community is found in gathering places where our citizens meet to connect, learn, grow, share and serve. Everyone benefits when these facilities meet our expectations and are cost effective to operate.
A group of proactive community leaders, with the Senior Center Board and its Director are working to raise $2.1 million to create a community asset and focal point for adults 50 and older -- a place that meets the needs of this population with resources for health, wellness, education and socialization.
The 11,000 sq. ft. expansion will include:
- Larger socialization area
- Fitness area
- Private meeting and consultation room
- Personal care space
- Up-to-date technology
- Larger room for presentations
- More handicapped parking spots
- Covered entrance
