Christine Friedt has created a program that appeals to all Seniors. There is something available for everyone no matter what your capabilities are. This program has become so important to so many that we are bursting at the seams at our current location. We lack adequate parking space for our activities. We do not have enough space in our current location for everyone that wants to participate in our activities and Events that are held on site. Many are unable to attend because of lack of space. ies and Events.

I chose this community to engage with because of the programs that it is offering at the Senior Center. I believe that a community center should support programs for all ages and interests.

Baby boomers need and want many more options in our older years than the "traditional" offerings in most senior community programming and activities., The Grand Rapids area has grown and changed a great deal in the recent past.I think our community would get stronger and become a more appealing and rewarding place to live, work, and move to if actual lifestyle preferences of current and future residents was analyzed to determine a community center identity. I would like to see the Plainfield community be more in line with/reflective of the more dynamic, lifestyle and "people" centered community that now exists in the GR/west MI region.

I hope the future space will be built to accommodate both indoor and outdoor physical activities, as well as offering opportunities for people with disabilities to participate. I would like to see playground equipment for children and benches for sitting.
