Durham’s seniors lose meeting place

Staff writer

The July 4 flood in Durham destroyed the community center, and it is still awaiting repairs.

Lila Unruh, president of Durham’s senior citizen organization, said they lost two stoves and two refrigerators and have no means to replace them. They haven’t met since.

She said if the building was repaired and losses replaced, the seniors would consider meeting there again.

She was hoping the city council would take action to restore the building.

Mayor Michael Sorenson suggested the group contact the Baptist church about meeting there.

The city is taking bids now on projects to renovate the building and replace windows and appliances.
