BOARD OF DIRECTORS CORNER

We will never make progress without participation and interest from the community. We welcome visionary ideas for the future.

Should Bigfork Community Center be independent and locally owned?

Should Bigfork Community Center be managed by the Bigfork Area Association of Senior Citizens? Or a Separate board?

Should the Bigfork Community Center continue to be a facility to serve our senior population? Nutrition, social, health and resource programs in partnership with Flathead County Agency on Aging.

Where is the best location for the Bigfork Community Center?

Easy access and convenient parking space for senior drivers.

Is this community ready for public transportation or private bus/van service?

MAKING BIGFORK AN “AGING FRIENDLY” PLACE IN WHICH TO LIVE

A community meeting will be planned soon to discuss the future.

Watch for the day and time.
