Angelina County Senior Center undergoing renovations

ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Starting next Monday, the Angelina County Senior Center will temporarily shut down for four months, but activities will continue at other locations near the facility.

The center announced they are undergoing renovations to bring it to ADA compliance.

Regular activities have moved to the First Church of the Nazarene located across the street from the center, while daily lunches will be provided at the North Lufkin and Huntington Senior Centers.

Meals will continue to be provided through the Meals on Wheels program, but the cooking will take place at Eastview United Pentecostal Church's kitchen.

Program Director Robyn Hight said the renovations are a long time coming.

"We're very fortunate that the county has received a grant specifically for us to do renovation work," Hight said. "The kitchen floor, the kitchen ceilings, the kitchen in itself, it and ladies restroom are the most needed things."

The center said a meeting is scheduled next Thursday at 3 p.m. to address questions.
