A big thanks to Tom Salemi for pointing out this piece, from the Boston Globe, about Wellesley senior citizens fighting for a senior center (although I have to confess, when I first saw the title of the post yesterday, I thought it referred to high school seniors and didn't read it).
I believe that this center is of paramount importance not because it's "giving in" to one segment of the population but because it will demonstrate a caring and respectful spirit.
I see all the arguments for making the center multi-generational, but I really think we need a senior citizens center and we need it not 5 or 10 years down the road - we need to get cracking now.
Far from being critical of the Senior Center Building Committee for investigating an option to Cushing Park, I think it's commendable that they set a deadline for looking into the Towle property (although I don't know what they've been doing for the last 3 or 4 weeks) - and if it doesn't work, we'll go back to ye olde contentious site on Kent St.
