General Manager: Ronna Rae Dueling
We at the Senior Activity Center, all knew him as "Gene Wiggers". His given name is Derald Eugene Wiggers, born July 11, 1932. Gene left this earthly existence December16, 2015.
His was always a positive attitude, even when leaving, he wrote: "Those who knew me will realize that I am on another volunteer assignment. This time, for the Lord".
Those who know him realize that he consistently was in the service of the Lord. Gene served in a myriad of other organizations throughout the city and region and he is greatly missed. The Senior Activity Center appreciates all that Gene Wiggers was responsible for while here, serving on the Board of Directors, recently elected to serve again on the Board, monthly doing glucose monitoring, bringing AARP to have lunch with us once a month, and many other wonderful assists including the round tables in the dining room. We miss you already and wish to send our profound sympathy and love to Edie Wiggers, Gene's companion, wife, and friend. Our love we also send to his beloved family. Thank you Gene.

On Wednesday, January 20th, 2016, the Senior Activity Center hosted a "Social Security Seminar" entitled, "Unlock Its' Potential", which was attended by approximately 50 people. Those who attended received great guidance and advice on how best to benefit from Social Security and strategic practices to best assist retirees. The Center wishes to thank Becky Walls for planning such a wonderful seminar and only wishes more of the community could have attended and benefited from the wise training. If you missed the event, you can contact Ms. Becky Walls at Edward Jones and she will be glad to share the information as she is a good source for planning ahead -- A good thing to do.
