Ridgway’s Senior Center, located on Vine Avenue, is slowly but surely recovering after taking on roughly three feet of water during last month’s devastating flood. After losing much of what was inside, including just under three feet of the bottom portion of its inner walls, things are beginning to come together.
“We’re down here working, and hopefully next week our breakfast club will be able to start up again,” said executive director Harry Himes.
The center is beginning to replace some of the items lost in order to become fully operational.
