Monday afternoon, COA officials along with representatives from the City of Three Rivers and St. Joseph County held a wall breaking at the former Three Rivers Inn. The facility will be the new COA Enrichment Center and Residence. It will be renovated to include senior apartments, a senior center, the COA offices and the home for the Meals On Wheels Program.
COA Executive Director Tim Stoll shared with the crowd it's been a long time getting to this point. LINKC.
Stoll says they appreciate the support from the COA Board, the County Commission and the seniors in St. Joseph County.
