Senior Citizens Day coming May 22

The Union County Sheriff’s Department will hold its annual Senior Citizens’ Day in the fairgrounds arena next Thursday, May 22.

The annual free event gets some grant support for funding and county officials volunteer to help cook and serve the fish dinners.

Sheriff Jimmy Edwards said seniors should arrive about 10 a.m., and food will be served a little later.

The program will include entertainment, as usual. In the past performers have included Kay Bain and Roy Caldwell.

Edwards said prizes will be given away, as usual, including weather radios and small fire extinguishers.
