Friday, 9/30, 12:30
Plymouth Church, 232 E. Onondaga
For 36 years, the Ida Benderson Senior Center has provided a home and family for low-income Syracuse senior citizens downtown. Without consulting the seniors, Mayor Stephanie Miner decided that the Center will close after Friday (9/30). Let’s show Mayor Miner that the Syracuse community supports its senior citizens. If you can’t make it to the march, please call Mayor Miner and ask her to support Syracuse seniors: 315.448.8005.
We will walk from Plymouth to Ida Benderson and conclude at City Hall. There, a delegation of seniors and allies, bringing an olive branch and a peace dove, will ask to meet with Mayor Miner about options for keeping the Center open.
