Cortland SCOPE finds new home

CORTLAND — The Cortland SCOPE Senior Center has found a new home at Cortland Christian Church, 153 Grove St.

Mike Wilson, executive director at SCOPE, said the center has a one -year lease at the church, with the lease starting in November.

The center’s programs and hours remain the same since leaving its past location near the Cortland Fire Department. Wilson said the former location was acquired by the Rock of Grace Church in Kinsman for a satellite location.

Hours of the center are 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday to Friday. The center has cards, sewing, computers, pool, arts and crafts, and entertainment.

“Rock of Grace was very supportive of us and waited until we found another location. They are spending four to five months preparing the old location for their building,” Wilson said.

Betty Yaugher of Cortland, who attends the center, said she likes the new location, especially line dancing.

Nancy Nevin of Mecca said she also likes attending the new location, noting there is more room for activities and programs. She said she liked that the center was able to stay in Cortland.

Wilson said the center will be at the church for at least one year.

“If it works for the church it works for us. It is a nice location,” he said.

Joyce Hall said the same programs that were provided at the former location also will be offered at the new location.

“That is what they say they like most,” she said.
