Members from the Ashland Senior Center and surrounding neighborhood of Hunter Park came to take part. The event is a way to connect community members and have a chance to enjoy a fun weekend with others. It’s a partnership between Asante, Ashland Police and Ashland Parks and Rec.
“Just enjoying the opportunity for everybody to connect informally. So often big organizations we connect informal ways but this is just a chance for people to hang out together and that’s been really fun,” Ashland Parks and Rec, Isleen Glatt said.
The three organizations say this first event went very well. They hope to continue having these community outings in the future.
