Celebrating Older Americans Month

Thursday, May 5, 2011
Democrat Photo May is Older Americans Month, and Cassville Mayor Tracy Holle presented the Senior Center a proclamation honoring area seniors. In the proclamation, Holle noted that 17 percent of the city's population consisted of adults ages 65 and over, and she commended older adults for their role in creating and bolstering the fiber of the community and nation. Pictured above, from left, are: Helen Berning; Louise Brooks; Red Phillips; Sylvia Phillips; Holle; Linda Parker, director of the Senior Center; Harold Palmer; Sue Horn; and John Berning. The Senior Center has several activities planned throughout the month of May to honor and celebrate older Americans.
