A ribbon cutting ceremony is being held at 10 a.m. Tuesday, March 1, at for the La Vergne Senior Center.
The center recently added 875 square feet to its existing structure by remodeling space vacated by the narcotics division of the police department.
The new addition will include both offices and a meeting facility.
"Our senior community is eager to use this extra space," said Director Donna Bebout. "We look forward to having educational speakers, discussion groups, and crafts here. In addition, we want to offer classes such as understanding Medicare options, tax help, and other information seniors need in today‚s world."
The first class in the new meeting facility is a "Matter of Balance Class," which includes information on preventing falls, exercises to improve balance, and other healthy lifestyle tips. Bebout and Cassandra Finch of the Greater Nashville Council on Aging are instructors.
The free class begins Friday, March 4 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. Openings for the class are still available and interested seniors can call 793-3048 to sign up or for more information.
"Whether you come to this specific class, stop by for the ribbon-cutting ceremony, or just stop in to socialize with your neighbors, you will be warmly welcomed at the La Vergne Senior Center," said Bebout.
