Music, ice cream and birthdays at the Senior Center (By Ann Ashcraft)

Margaret SEZ’S. “We want every senior in Hot Spring County to be able to enjoy their senior years and you can do this by eating a balanced meal each day and staying active. We want to encourage you to come into the Senior Center if you are not already doing so and socialize with others your age. We provide transportation to anyone who needs a ride. All you need to do is call 332-5374.
If you have any questions we will be glad to discuss your situation and needs with. Remember to stay cool this summer and drink a lot of fluids. The best way to save on your electric bill at home is to come stay at the Malvern Senior Center with us all day and take advantage of the exercise equipment, pool room, computer room and the card games.” It will make you feel much better.
