Senior Citizens Center reopens

THE Senior Citizens Center was reopened for the manamko’ on Wednesday, Oct. 16, six days after the last of the people who took shelter from the typhoon at the facility returned to their homes.

Office on Aging Director Walter Manglona said they cleaned up the place for four days to make sure it is suitable for the senior citizens.

The center was one of the designated shelters as Typhoon Hagibis passed over Saipan on Oct. 7 and 8.

“We love to help people in the community,” Manglona said.

There were 37 individuals, including the team of traditional navigators who sought shelter at the Office on Aging.

Manglona said the manamko’ are now preparing for various events that will be held in November and December.
