Back in her element

ROSCOMMON- Debra Looney is back in her element as RCCOA’s new Director. Looney previously served as Roscommon County Commission on Aging’s Activities Coordinator (RCCOA) for eleven years.

Looney has at one time or another, served in every position at RCCOA, except for Meals on Wheels and home services. During her past years of service, Looney was very active in the community, heading up fundraisers, starting new programs such as arthritis exercises, cardio drumming, and “wonderful” bus trips. 

Looney is looking forward and excited to be interacting with staff and seniors at each of the centers, located in Houghton Lake, Roscommon, and St. Helen. However, said she does miss some of the finite planning of individual activities her former position required.

Looney stated she is “honored to have been selected for this very important position and will work hard and do her best to fulfill all responsibilities.” Looney will oversee five facilities and their large staff. So far, “it has been a whirlwind of information, meeting people, getting to know staff, and interacting with seniors at each facility.”
