Special thanks to Jean Johnson and the many participants who made Senior Celebration May 5 at The Mall in Hays such a nice affair with entertainment, prizes and fun.
The music was lively and great. The booths were attractive, informative and helpful with generous giveaways. And the special services including hearing and vision tests, blood pressure and blood sugar tests.
But most impressive and appreciated were the people -- the business and community folks who manned the booths, took time to inform and converse with each and all of us, and those who so beautifully organized and planned the entire affair.
This outpouring of interest and concern for seniors in Hays and Ellis County did not seem consistent with their day-by-day provision for seniors, which we have observed and experienced in other cities and counties. By this, I have reference to the lack of a permanent senior site or senior building built or purchased as a meal site and center for senior activities.
Thanks, folks, for the Senior Celebration.
