Donation provides one year of free coffee at the Fort Plain Senior Center

Wednesday, August 27, 2014 - Updated: 2:10 PM

FORT PLAIN -- Tuesday morning, a donation was provided to the Fort Plain Senior Center by The Shults Agency President Scott Maclauchlin. The $1,350 donation will allow local seniors to enjoy coffee at the center for free for a full year.

The donation, said Maclauchlin, is meant to "honor some of the lifelong residents and people who've been here the longest."

"We're very grateful to the Shults Agency," stated Fort Plain Mayor Guy Barton, noting that a sign will be put up letting seniors know that no donation is necessary for coffee.

Fort Plain Senior Center Director Maggie Ahrens said, "It's a very generous check, and we really appreciate the Shults Agency for doing this."

Of the center, Ahrens -- who just started her fifth week as director -- explained, "We're very diverse in our activities," which include games, cards, luncheons and trips. Seniors attend each day of the week from 8 a.m. to Noon.

The goal of the center, she said, is to "make life a little better for the seniors here." Ahrens stated that the center is considering numerous ideas to draw in more seniors, including expanded afternoon hours.
