Senior Center celebrates Green Certification

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – The Ajax Turner Senior Center celebrated becoming Clarksville-Montgomery County’s newest Green Certified organization with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday.

 Clarksville Mayor Joe Pitts and City Council members Wanda Smith, Ron Erb and Travis Holleman attended the event along with Green Certification Board Members David Graham, Rose Melton, Gene Fish, Bill Harpel, Doug Jones and Haley Randell.

 Carlye Sommers, Green Certification Program Manager, thanked the senior center staff and volunteers for their work to achieve certification. The Senior Center has begun a recycling program, obtained an energy audit and started an energy-saving LED lighting program. The Center also offers a weekly recycling class taught by Jayne Johnson that shows members how to repurpose and recycle household items.

 Janet Holleman, the Center’s Marketing/Fundraising Coordinator, gave a special thanks to employee Audrey Field who is passionate about recycling and ensures that recyclables are removed from the trash.

 The center, also known as the Clarksville 50+ Activity Center, offers a variety of services for older adults. Bingo, sewing classes, a walking program and dance instruction are available, along with an adult day center. Breakfast and lunch are served Monday-Friday, and the center offers medical screenings and health education classes.
