The Manhattan Senior Center celebrated its recent rebranding with a ribbon cutting ceremony Friday.

Center Director Liz Nelson cut the ribbon herself and explained how the center started off with a rather cumbersome name.

Despite the rebrand, Nelson said it is important for the community to understand that their mission and area of service has not changed.
