Tim Carter will serve as afternoon and evening program coordinator for Ela 55+.

Ela 55+ has added a new staff member, Senior Program Coordinator Tim Carter, 29, of Arlington Heights.

“I will be bringing new programs to the adults and seniors of Ela Township. New afternoon and evening programs will be my primary focus, however you will see me on trips and at special events,” he said.

Tim previously worked as senior manager for the Rolling Meadows Park District and was a hotel aquatics manager before deciding senior programming was his true passion.

“I happily accepted the new position and challenge at Ela 55+! I am very excited to serve the community and township,” he said.

Tim added he was eager to organize more diverse programs and trips to meet the wants and needs of adult and senior members of the ever-growing Ela 55+ program.

In his free time, Tim enjoys running and spending time with his family. He and his wife became new parents with the birth of their daughter in April.
