From the St. Thomas Source:

The cutting of a ribbon on Thursday to celebrate the reconstruction of a senior center on St. John had significance beyond that of an obligatory civic ritual.

More than three years after the devastating storms of 2017, Thursday’s event represents the culmination of hard work and collaboration among multiple territorial agencies, the federal government and the private sector to reach an important milestone.

“The center represents the first major recovery project for St. John on the governor’s top 100 list, as well as the first major recovery project for the Virgin Islands Housing Authority,” according to a news release from the V.I. Housing Authority.

The senior center, located at the George Simmons Terrace Housing Community in Estate Adrian, was one of dozens of buildings housing vital community programs that were damaged by Hurricane Irma in 2017.
