As a board member of the Sister Kennedy Senior Centre, I have been taking a lot of flak about the name change.
First of all, I was never aware the name change was the goal of three, and maybe four, members of this board.
The sole objective with the new sign was to clearly state the building was a town-owned senior centre. Not to remove “Sister.”
I've been asked if “Sister" was removed, and "Ruffus" or "Doctor," "Admiral," "Reverend," or "Teacher Kennedy” replaced the above, would that narrow the narrow-mindedness of these so-called massive numbers of people that don't come to the senior centre because of the name.
