— Cooler weather is finally here. As the holidays quickly approach, there are many elderly shut-ins who have no family. Please take time to check on your elderly neighbors and see if they have any simple needs that you can help them with. The basics of staying warm and fed are always a concern.

A new warm or gently used blanket and nonperishable food are a great way to show you care. Just checking on a neighbor is often enough to bring a smile to their face and make you feel good too.

The Senior Center offers limited transportation to seniors 60 years or older within the city limits who are interested in coming to the Center for exercise or lunch on a daily basis. They may also call the Center on Thursday to sign up for shopping services Friday morning in Gravette. Meals and transportation are not free but low cost.
