A $5,000,000 senior citizens’ residential project will be built here under the sponsorship of the Myron B. Sutton Post 113, Jewish War Veterans of the United States, according to an announcement by officers of the post. Harry Wolf, past commander of the post, has been named chairman of the committee in charge of the project’s construction.

The center will provide 250 units for living quarters, as well as a chapel and social hall and other facilities. It will offer its facilities to senior citizens from all over the country. Construction is scheduled to start next summer.
