New senior center hits $12M mark in capital campaign

A recent fundraising breakfast and related donations raised more than $60,000 toward a capital campaign for a new Edmonds Senior Center. The group now has $12 million toward its $16 million goal.

The Oct. 25 event at the Edmonds Yacht Club highlighted plans for the Edmonds Waterfront Center, a 26,000-square-foot facility that will in part serve aging residents of south Snohomish and north King counties. The goal is to break ground in spring 2019.
