10 YEARS AGO — February 1, 2009 — we opened our doors to The Susi Q Senior Center and wondered how we would fill it up with the kinds of programs, services and advocacy that would help make the hometown we love the best possible place to age gracefully and meet the challenges of time. Today we are bursting at the seams, full of new cheer and good plans. Stay tuned all throughout the year as we celebrate and continue "living it up"! #TheSusiQ10Years
