BEL AIR, Md., (Feb. 9, 2015) – The Edgewood Senior Activity Center now has a pergola, a landscaping framework similar to an arbor, to enhance visitors’ outdoor experiences thanks to a donation from the Edgewood Lions Club and support from Harford County government. The senior center located at 1000 Gateway Road is operated by the county Department of Community Services’ Office on Aging.
“The pergola will provide shade and allow our seniors to more fully enjoy the outdoor space at the center,” said Karen Winkowski, administrator for the Office on Aging.
Harford County Senior Center Division Manager Suzanne Streeter said, “The Office on Aging and the Edgewood Senior Activity Center deeply appreciate the Edgewood Lions Club’s generosity and their ongoing support of the center. The pergola is a great addition to the center and the seniors will appreciate this wonderful outdoor space for many years to come.”
A generous $3,000 donation from the Edgewood Lions Club went toward the purchase of materials to build the structure on the back patio at the center. County employees in the Department of Administration’s Division of Facilities and Operations rendered the designs and drawings, and completed construction in late 2014.
The Harford County Department of Community Services’ Office on Aging operates six senior activity centers. The centers offer an array of programs including dancing, quilting, basket weaving, painting, woodshop, traveling, memoir writing, the study of the Civil War and much more.
