I recall nearly seven years ago, sitting in Farrell Fleming's office in the old Senior Center building as he asked me if I'd be interested in serving on the board of directors. I had recently retired, and he thought I would be a good addition to the board.
As he chatted, our conversation had to stop several times as freight trains blasted their way through Edmonds, obliterating any ongoing discussion until they had passed. I shared my concern with him about the current Senior Center model. I felt that senior centers as we had come to know them were dinosaurs in our current world.
