Senior Awareness Day is coming

You can volunteer to help with Senior Awareness Day

Wilson County’s 21st Annual Senior Awareness Day is Friday, May 9, 2014 at Farmington Heights Church during Older American's Month.

“It is an exciting time as we plan for this special day. We encourage and welcome our senior and disabled population to get involved in planning this wonderful event,” said Candice Rountree, Social Work Program Manager.

The Senior Awareness Day committee meets the third Wednesday of each month at 3:00 p.m. at the department of social services’ multipurpose room.

Individuals that are interested in volunteering may call 252-265-8338. Senior Awareness Day aims to educate Wilson County seniors and disabled adults about federal, state and local services and to celebrate their lives by showing seniors appreciation for their contributions to the our community. The Wilson County Department of Social Services and community partners proudly sponsor this event.
