Seniors packed city hall Monday night to save meals delivery, transportation to grocery stores and doctors and other activities, like line dancing.
Their funding was cut $2,000 from last year to a total of $53,000. The seniors, facing $10,500 cuts from federal and state governments, asked the city for $60,000 this year.
The county hasn't cut the funding from last year's level.
Seniors are getting discharged from health facilities quicker, to save money, and so the Gathering Place has had to serve more people.
Sadie Benedict Query, the line dancing instructor at the center, spoke.
"I'm begging you to get those seniors dancing," she said. "They really need the exercise."
She's afraid that line dancing classes will be cut because the budget is tight. The floors have to be cleaned twice as much because of the classes.
