SEDGWICK—Daylene Beckner has taken over as the new executive director of the Sedgwick Senior Center. Beckner started Monday and is anxious to meet members. She said she already knows a lot of the ladies that come to the Sedgwick center.

Beckner is also the executive director of the Bentley Eagle Senior Center. She has been at that post for seven years.

“My main function at Bentley has been in charge of funding,” she said. “I do the reports and report to the Department of Aging.” Her official responsibilities there only take a few hours on Fridays.

Beckner said she is impressed with the Sedgwick Senior Center.

“It is so nice,” she said. “It is really laid out well and I am really looking forward to working here.”

She will be at the center in Sedgwick Monday through Friday for three hours each morning.
