During the January 2015 Industry Neighborhood Association meeting, residents expressed interest in having access to a senior center within the neighborhood. This initiative was given a low priority during the March 2015 neighborhood association meeting. The Unity Center, located at 515 E. 9th St., Muncie, occupies the former Garfield Elementary School building. Current programming for seniors included: Coffee Talk: An oral history program on Mondays from 10am to 11am; Seated Yoga with Sarah Lytle on Tuesdays at 10am; Small Steps to Health with Velvet Miller from Purdue Extensions on Thursdays at 10:30; and Bingo Brunch and Produce Giveaways on Fridays at 11am.
Increased participation in existing programming will provide the Unity Center with a chance to expand programming that neighborhood residents want to see offered to them.
