The 2011-12 Kaufman Leadership class is joined by staff and friends of the Kaufman County Senior Center to celebrate the installation of a new oven and funding of repairs and upgrades to the facility with a ribbon cutting. Center director Cyrena Stewart (third from right) cuts the ribbon and to her left is Phyllis Walker, director of the Kaufman County Dept. of Aging.

The class took on the Center as its project and the members proceeded to earn the funds needed for the purchase. June 6, they gathered at the Center for refreshments and a ribbon cutting.
The group raised the $2,500 needed for the commercial oven plus another $6,500, which was donated to effect repairs and paint the building.
The Center not only prepares noon-time meals for seniors who come to the center, but it cooks the hot lunches for the area Meals on Wheels program.
The class enrolled 20 participants who became well acquainted with various public service areas, such as human services, economic development corporations, city, county and state government, education, health care and transportation.
