Clermont Senior Services opens its sixth housing facility

This past weekend was wet and soggy outside, but the halls of Summerside Woods were warm and dry, and spirits were high, as 45 senior citizens began moving into their new home on Summerside Road in Union Township.

A grand opening and dedication ceremony is planned for June 29. More details about this event will be provided at a later date.

Primary funding for Summerside Woods was provided by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development, with local support by Fifth Third Bank.

All utilities are included in the monthly rent, which is based on 30 percent of an individual
