Trails and parks to be evaluated, work prioritized
At the conclusion of two meetings, the trails and parks task force decided to seek the help of an expert. The expert will assess Ingham County’s existing parks and trails as well as parks and trails that belong to other local jurisdictions. This work will help the Board of Commissioners prioritize budgeting millage revenue for everything from maintenance to capital improvements to new construction.
The expert’s findings will become part of Ingham County’s parks master plan, which has to be updated next year. The expert is expected to begin work in early summer of this year.
Run for the Ages, Meals on Wheels fundraisers
After a successful inaugural event last year, the Tri-County Office on Aging is bringing back Run for the Ages. This all ages, all ability levels event takes place in Hawk Island Park on Saturday, May 9; it offers 1-mile and 5K events. Proceeds benefit TCOA’s programming for seniors in Ingham, Eaton, and Clinton counties. For more information or to register, click here.
TCOA is also planning its 27th Annual Meals on Wheels Charity Golf Outing. This popular event will take place on Tuesday, June 9, at Walnut Hills Country Club in East Lansing. To sponsor or to play in the golf outing, call TCOA at (517) 887-1440.
Events like Run for the Ages and the golf outing help keep Meals on Wheels and other in-home services available to seniors in need. In fact, even though demand for Meals on Wheels has steadily increased over the past several years, TCOA is able to serve everyone. Seniors do not have to wait for Meals on Wheels.
