Thanksgiving was a special time for Natalie Davis, director of the Missaukee County Commission on Aging.

It marked the second month that the COA is in its new building at the former Fifth Third bank site.

“It’s been going very well,” Davis said. “It’s been good access, which is great. We will be having craft activities for the holidays. It’s such a bright and cheery building. It has lot of natural light.”

The new building provides about two-thirds more space than the former facitity, Davis indicated

“We have a local person who is an excellent crafter. This will be a fun project for our seniors,” Davis said. “We’re trying to get the crafts program together to give our seniors something to do. We’re moving forward with that.”

Housing committee

Precia Garland, Missaukee County administrator, said a meeting is coming up Nov. 30 and at that time the committee will be looking at applications for assistance.

“People are requesting emergency housing grant assistance,” Garland said. “It’s an income based program. We’re able, based on funds available coming in, and as people are paying off old mortgages, we can make those funds available through emegency grants.”
