The Council On Aging board decided to scale back COA’s programs and the COA staff has been working diligently to find a new home for the Discover programs. While we continue to search for a suitable partner for our Discover Nashville program, we are thrilled to report that Williamson County Parks & Recreation has agreed to transition the Discover Franklin program to their organization! The Discover Franklin program blends beautifully with the current WCPR outreach programs for older adults and with their programming at the new Enrichment Center in Franklin. COA and WCPR recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the transition of the Discover program.
As they take over coordination of Discover Franklin, WCPR is considering changing the name to Discover Williamson to incorporate growing areas like Nolensville and Brentwood. They are in the process of planning a spring 2018 class, and COA will share more information once WCPR determines a date and other details.
Please know that we remain committed to seeing the Discover programs continue to enrich the lives of long time residents and newcomers to our area!
