Right on Annie Johnson (“Senior center fee is prohibitive,” Dec. 15)! We at the Geranium City Garden Club have been dealing with this for two years. This is so unfair to our senior population.
The senior center was built for the seniors and City Council always saying, “We are going to close this building down to the seniors” is a threat to our elderly population. Our garden club is the organization that graciously worked for months to donate the lovely patio at the senior center six years ago and has continued to maintain it. Later we added a “Blue Star Memorial By-Way Marker” in honor of our veterans and a tribute to the armed forces of America to the senior garden court.
What about contributors from Suisun City and Vacaville to the Fairfield Senior Center? Their seniors are charged $60 a year if they are in an organization that meets at Fairfield senior center.
Our garden club meets monthly seven or eight times per year and contributes funds annually. Wouldn’t it be fair to dispense with this contention and let all seniors enjoy their time in the center?
