Community Members Seek to Rescue Clarksburg Senior Center

By Tammy DanielsiBerkshires Staff

Three COA board members — Barbara King in green, Lily Kuzia in back and Shirley Therrien, right — explain why they disbanded. 
CLARKSBURG, Mass. — News of the looming closure of the Senior Center last week has prompted a group of community members to mount a rescue. 
Nearly two dozen people attended an emergency meeting organized by Lauren and Robert Norcross at the center on Thursday night to find ways to keep the 15-year-old building open and the Council on Aging functioning.
"We're not here, again, to take over and do anything," Robert Norcross said. "We're here to try to help save the building and try and see if there's interest. ... Right now you guys cannot go on any longer, we need to get younger people involved, number one, in order to pass it on and keep going."
The Council on Aging voted at the beginning of the month to disband and gave the town 30 days notice that the building would close.
