District 4 San Luis Obispo County Supervisor Lynn Compton recently presented a check to the Nipomo Senior Center. “It was great visiting the Nipomo Senior Center and delivering a check for $1,500,” Compton said. “The Senior Center will be updating the couches, floors, exterior and more in the near future. By applying for the county’s Community Grant Fund, the group was awarded money for these updates. Thank you to Judy Mishoulam for applying for the grant. This is a perfect example of how to use these funds. I am glad to be able to support such a deserving cause.” Courtesy photo
