About Us

Pier 55 is open to all individuals age 55 and over. The Center is handicapped accessible and no one shall be refused access to programs because of race, religion, sex, color, economic status, or disability. Our mission as Red Wing Area Seniors, Inc. is to enhance, stimulate, accommodate and support ever-changing and active lives.

Memory Bears & Pillows

When a loved one passes away, deciding what to do with their belongings can be difficult. Grandpa’s favorite shirt, grandma’s quilt, dad’s handkerchief, or mom’s apron may hold special memories for us. Giving away these cherished items can indeed be painful. Now these items can be made into treasured keepsakes. We have gifted seamstresses who can transform the personal items into a Memory Bear or a Memory Pillow, something that you can hold onto and cherish. Complete the attached order form and return it with the clothing or other items to Red Wing Area Seniors, Inc. Most orders will take two to three weeks to complete.
