MILTON — The Ballston Area Senior Citizens (BASC) officially celebrated the organization’s return to their home at the Milton Community Center after a 24-month absence. The event, which took place June 11, 2022, was hosted by the BASC Board and was free to all members.
In March 2020, the Town of Milton moved its offices to the Center while the Milton Town Hall underwent major repairs and renovations. The BASC had to relocate. In January 2022, the work on the Town Hall was completed and in March, the seniors were finally able to fully move back into the Milton Community Center, the BASC home since 1995.
President Marge Bayer opened the meeting with a heartfelt “Welcome Home friends,” thanked the Homecoming Celebration Committee - Barb Broderson, Linda Elmer, Meg Stevens, Ellie Kelch, Dot Christiansen and Jean Dowd - for their work putting together the celebration, welcomed town of Milton Supervisor Scott Ostrander, Ballston Spa Mayor Frank Rossi Jr., and Town of Ballston Supervisor Eric Connolly to the event, and recognized Vice President Linda Elmer - who served as BASC President from 2015-2021 - for taking the lead in keeping the BASC active through the difficult COVID shutdown and 22-month relocation period.
More than 140 BASC members attended the celebration. For more information, visit the BASC website at: www.ballstonmiltonseniors.com.
