Frederick County’s senior population is rapidly growing, and resources supporting their needs is becoming increasingly important. To that end, The Rosebud Frederick Senior Support Fund has been established with The Community Foundation of Frederick County and becomes one of more than 700 funds under management.
The fund was created by Rose Marie Willard Myers and will provide annual grants that help seniors with basic human needs, therapeutic, socialization, recreation, and nutrition needs, and other areas that enable seniors to age in place. Mrs. Myers, a participant in programs offered by the Frederick Senior Center, wanted to assist the Center and other organizations that respond to the needs of seniors and through the fund, can do so in perpetuity. In addition, she wanted to honor her late husband, George “Bud” Myers.
