Rosedale Senior Center
receives $5,000 in grants



It was a banner day, last Thursday, for the Rosedale Senior Center. A number of residents, board members and supports were on hand for the presentation of a $5,000 commitment from the Governor’s Community Partnership Grant Program. Delegate Brent Boggs of the 34th District and Delegate David Walker of the 33rd District each presented Gerrie Moore, Rosedale Senior Center Board Secretary/Treasurer with letters of commitment for $2,500 in state funding.
Those on hand enjoyed a home cooked meal before Gerrie Moore outlined the history of the center for those present. “When we became an independent facility in 2006, many throughout the county, said it couldn’t be done,” she explained. She explained that the donated property was the beginning and in 2009 the organization purchased the building, paying half of the $52,000 purchase price down.
