The programs at Center in the Park are meant to provide opportunities for older adults to participate in social, recreational, health and fitness, arts and humanities and lifelong learning activities.

Regina Brunner

We are carrying out the legacy that she established as one of the very first staff members of Center in the Park when it was the Northwest Center for Older Adults and located in the Womenís Y.

After 22 years as the Centerís Associate Director, Regina continued her positive aging journey through service in the community . . . and, she remained a model for us to follow, as well as a generous contributor to the Centerís annual campaigns and its special appeals, clearly demonstrating that the Center still held a special place in her heart.

We will remember how she lived, laughed, smiled and gave generously of herself to the community, older adults and Center in the Park; and, we will honor her as we continue to live out the Centerís mission and uphold her legacy.
