A Linden senior center is rebuilding after a fire destroyed one of three buildings in 2011.
Since the fire Loose Senior Citizen Center has outsourced many activities and they say getting the wheels turning on this building is restoring what today's attendee's call a home away from home.
Loose Senior Citizen Center is starting fresh and looking to get their 160 programs back on their grounds.
The senior center says they are expecting a 20-30 percent increase in membership after the more than 6 thousand square-foot building is complete.
The center is planning the construction carefully, watching each dollar closely but as a backup they say mortgage options are on the table.
