Tuesday marked a significant milestone for Cranston, as City Hall fully reopened for business and the Cranston Senior Enrichment Center on Cranston Street hosted a reopening event in celebration of the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions.

Lines of eager seniors formed as visitors arrived, and the Transvan brought residents of the city’s various manors to take part in the event. There were emotional moments and warm greetings as center staff and volunteers greeted seniors who they had not seen in months due to the pandemic. Mayor Ken Hopkins also made a visit to the reopening event, which ran from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

A raffle was held for a one-year membership to the center, while a number tables were set up inside the dining room to provide information about various vendors and services offered through the facility.

“We’re getting off to a hot start,” Senior Services Director Stephen Craddock said, who began in his current role earlier this year and was meeting many seniors for the first time.
