Dick Covey, left, and Asa Radley, right, check out the model of the new Eastside Senior Center, 1550 E. Murray-Holladay Road, as architect Mustafa Kanishka explains specifics. Senior citizens and county officials shoveled ceremonial piles of dirt Friday in breaking ground for the new center, which will be completed in 1997. More than 25,000 people older than 65 live in the area that will be serviced by the center, which will be operated by Salt Lake County Aging Services. Five days a week, the 15,000-square-feet center will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to offer classes, activities, meetings and lunch to people 60 and older.
