It was a terrific experience for us, maybe not so terrific for our guests representing the Town of Sweden. Because there has been so much controversy at the Senior Center over changes taking place, we invited the Town Supervisor to come and clear up some of the rumors. He brought along a Board Member, and the Finance person for the Town. They were immediately in awe of the 120 people who had gathered for the meeting and said they had expected 15 or 20. We presented them with 11 questions last week and proceeded to get them answered one by one. Then we had an open forum and many people spoke (with great passion, I might add).
It was a great demonstration of strength by the Seniors and Community members... hopefully it will have an impact on future decisions made by the Town Government.
