RUSKIN -- Hillsborough County's Senior Adult Day Care program for the Ruskin area will relocate on May 15 from St. John the Divine Episcopal Church on E College Avenue to a recently renovated county building at 901 Sixth St.
The Department of Aging Services has been operating the Ruskin day care center and nutrition program at the church since 1990.
The county's eight Senior Adult Day Care programs offer counseling; medication administration; health monitoring by nurses; meals, snacks and nutrition counseling; and recreational activities.
Most services are free. For more information, call 272-5250.
Boat ramp may get upgrades
RUSKIN -- The Hillsborough County Department of Parks and Recreation is applying for a $200,000 grant from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for improvements to the Ruskin Commongood Boat Ramp. If the state approves the grant request, the county will match it and will be reimbursed by the state after completion of the $400,000 project.
Ruskin Commongood Boat Ramp is on the Little Manatee River just east of U.S. 41 and Shellpoint Road. The aging ramp can't accommodate contemporary watercraft, forcing many Ruskin area boaters to use ramps miles away. Recommended improvements include expanding and paving the shelled parking lot, repairing the seawall and boat slips, controlling stormwater to stop erosion and adding picnic facilities.
