Omar Reusser was one of the first to become interested in pursuing a new building for the senior population in Berne. As President of the the Berne Senior Fellowship he was aware that the building they were meeting in was to be sold. A group of interested citizens and seniors formed the initial committee and began gathering support and ideas on how to raise funds to build a new building that would be used for the needs of the adult population living in the south half of Adams County, including Berne, Geneva, Linn Grove, and Monroe. Neighboring Wells County was in the process of receiving a Federal Grant of the Housing and Urban Development and after receiving further encouragement from local citizens the newly formed South Adams Seniors, Inc. decided to apply for a grant. With cooperation from the City of Berne, a $445,000 Community Focus Fund Grant was received from the State of Indiana. Local citizens responded and well over $200,000 additional money was raised to furnish the building with tables, chairs, and other startup expenses.
