On this week’s episode of the Northeast Newscast, we are speaking with Liz Zini about her new role as director of the Don Bosco Center and the new vision and goals for the center. Zini became the director in March.

The plan is for the Don Bosco Center renovations to be done by the end of this year, Zini said. The new goal for the center is to make it a community gathering space that serves more people of all ages. They are including a commercial kitchen for people to rent, classrooms where classes such as cooking and fitness will take place, and a gymnasium which will be used for athletics and fitness and as an event space.
