The Hub, formerly known as the Cook County Senior Center, is home to a myriad of activities. Some geared for senior citizens, but others for all ages. The multi-generational aspect led to the name change for the building and its programs on Broadway Avenue in Grand Marais.

The Hub is operated by the Cook County Council on Aging, and still offers many senior services, such as lunches and Meals-on-Wheels, foot care, blood pressure and blood sugar screenings, a medical equipment loan closet, Medicare consultation visits. and more.
 
The Hub also offers opportunities for cards, crafts, and presentations on subjects of interest to all ages. There are Tech Support days, on the first Monday of each month from 1 to 3 p.m., which is a time when student interns from Boreal Community Media are on hand to help people master their cell phones and other devices. 

The Hub has also set up a mentor program with senior citizens working with the fifth-grade students at Sawtooth Mountain Elementary for reading and crafts. See the photo above of some of the seniors and students celebrating this collaboration. 

There is a lot more! To learn more, contact The Hub to sign up for the E-newletter. Email seniors@boreal.org or call 218-387-2660. 

WTIP’s Rhonda Silence visited The Hub recently to talk about the reasons behind the name change, as well as all the services are available there.
