The Marshall Area Economic Development Alliance (MAEDA)/Choose Marshall congratulated chamber member Heritage Commons Senior Enrichment Center with a We Noticed Ribbon Cutting at their new location in Marshall.
Heritage Commons Senior Enrichment Center is managed and operated by CareWell Services. Its founding partners are Oaklawn Hospital, the Senior Millage and the City of Marshall. It is a gathering place for adults aged 60 and older to socialize, exercise, learn and engage with others in the community. It provides a variety of activities, wellness programs, community presentations and more. Some of the activities the center offers on an ongoing basis include bingo, euchre, arts and crafts, and exercise classes. In order to bring members beneficial programming, it partners with other community organizations to provide information on such topics as financial literacy, pain management, technology assistance, legal advice, health, and wellness.
Kitty Knoll, Heritage Commons Manager, is very pleased to be in their new space and no longer limited by the smaller size of the former facility. She stated, “We don’t have to move the furniture from room to room because we now have separate rooms for our activities and meetings. We have a card room and an arts and crafts room with ample workspace and even space for storage.” She added, “We even have a dedicated game room with a pool table! We have a very large kitchen that we couldn’t be prouder of and look forward to planning activities to use it to its full potential.”
Jack Reed, chair of the Heritage Commons Steering Committee commented, “We have far exceeded our expectations for this space and are so please how it all turned out. We never could have imagined how well it all came together.”

The center celebrates its Grand Opening on July 21st from 3-6pm. The community is invited to attend the new location of the Heritage Commons Senior Center is 15885 W.
