BOWLER, WI - The Stockbridge Munsee Community has chosen Bayland Buildings, Inc. as the general contractor for their new elderly services center, located at N8651 Maplewood Street, Bowler, Wisconsin.
Ground was broken following a tribal blessing on Friday, July 29th. The project is over 7,200 square feet, consisting of multipurpose space for daily dining services and hosting occasional community events. Other key features include a large stone fireplace separating a lounge and large seating area, a commercial grade kitchen, professional meeting areas and a covered drive-up/drop off area. The new building will connect two existing elderly apartments and is meant to replace the current forty-year-old elderly center. The center will provide the elderly community with daily meal services, socialization, educational and health safety events, registration for benefits and will greatly enhance the quality of life as a centralized area of activities for the tribal elders. Construction is expected to be complete in the winter of 2016.
