“Center” of attention

CADIZ - After 35 years, the Harrison County Senior Center is still going strong! This hidden treasure of the county offers bingo, yoga, luncheons, health screenings, and that is only the beginning. Spokesperson Nettie Smith wants to get the word out about all the services the Center offers, but more importantly, she would like to thank the voters of the county for passing a much-needed levy. “Our program is funded by the levy, Area Agency on Aging Region 9 support, and donations through fundraising.”
Passage of the levy in 2008 has enabled the center to hire two more homemaker aides, doubling the popular program. “Families like to know that someone is looking in on their loved ones,” Smith said. The homemaker aide program currently employs four women that go into senior homes across the county to help with laundry, light cleaning, errands, and meal preparation. Read more about the many programs and activities available at the Senior Center in this Saturday’s print edition of the Harrison News-Herald.
