To the Editor:
Has any thought been given to using Atwood Lodge as a retirement home? People could pay to live there. The rooms would be occupied full time. The kitchen and dining room is already there. The downstairs could still be used for public use for receptions or conventions. Seniors and widows will always need homes. Because people are living longer, senior centers and nursing homes as well as retirement homes are always full with waiting lists. What a beautiful place for our aging population to spend their last years.

College and/or technical and vocational schools might also be able to use it all or part as their course of studies program for students. Courses in culinary arts, management, bookkeeping, carpentry, landscaping, engineering, etc. would be possibilities.

Sebring Florida College runs an old hotel and serves a fabulous buffet on Sunday for lunch. People wait in line for a chance to eat there. They even have a retired man play the piano during lunch. They get college credit for their work. Students learn self esteem by doing something useful and helping others.
I hate to see it torn down if there is some way to save it.
