With the end of construction in sight, a grand opening has been planned for the new addition at Senior Services Plus in Alton. The added room at the facility's wellness center will add a 5,400 square foot open fitness room with a walking track and a 2,400 square foot exercise classroom.

SSP Executive Director Jonathan Becker tells The Big Z this project has been a long time in the making.
