Meet and Greet

60+ Advisory Board Needs You!

The 60+ Center Advisory Committee of Newport has created a rather exciting goal: “The 60+ Advisory Committee will continue to meet the needs of the aging population (focusing on physical structure).” This is a five-year goal.

By June, 2026 they plan to obtain funding to:

Option 1: Increase the size of the current physical building, or

Option 2: Purchase land to build a new building, or

Option 3: Purchase an existing building and complete a remodel.

The 60+ Center Advisory Committee needs your help! The workgroup is seeking two members of the Newport 60+ Activity Center to join their workgroup to help complete this goal. The group may possibly meet once per month, but there may be months when more meetings are necessary. To become a part of this exciting work, please contact Ann Way awayjway@gmail.com or 541-270-6728, or Stu Osborn sdosborn@msn.com or 425-463-5406.
