HOLLAND — After spending five years as the director of the Holland Senior Center and another 12 years as the center's coordinator, Margaret Crock will retire at the end of the month.

Crock has been involved in many important decisions regarding the senior center during her tenure, including serving on the building committee for the current senior center located at 40 Brimfield Road. She witnessed the building's construction and helped fill it with plenty of programs and activities for seniors once it was ready for use.

"This building has allowed us to schedule many programs that we wouldn't have been able to hold in our previous location," Crock said. "Being a part of the construction of the center was one of my best memories here."

Crock plans to spend time with family and perhaps do a little in state traveling after her retirement, but she still has a lot to look forward to in her final month on the job, as October is a busy month at the senior center. A flu shot clinic will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 11 from 1 to 2:30 p.m., with trained personnel from the CVS in Palmer scheduled to administer vaccines to anyone over 18. Seniors should bring their Medicare or Medicaid cards, and all individuals should bring their insurance cards. If an individual's insurance policy does not cover the vaccine, or if his or her carrier reimburses medical expenses, the cost will be $29.99.
