Senior center gets money infusion

Funding for Spana-Park Senior Center has received a boost of nearly $50,000 from Pierce County.

The County Council included $48,000 for the center in a $3.7 million supplemental budget approved in April in support of public safety, parks and community improvements.

Councilman Rick Talbert, whose district includes the Spanaway area, said the allocation for Spana-Park Senior Center restores its funding to previous budget amounts and ensures that the center “will be able to continue its operations.”

The center, located on the grounds of the former Marymount Military Academy, offers meals, activities and other services.
