The eighth Senior Service Day was held for the second time at Riverbluff Park recently.

“There is so much more room to enjoy, explore and organize with having the event outdoors at the park,” Ashland City Senior Center Director Melissa Womack said. “There was also so much more opportunity and room for interaction. The orchestration of the event was perfect and by all estimations was a huge success with over 30 vendors on hand to provide information on services.”

The Ashland City Fire Department began the event with a moment of silence for 9/11 victims, a prayer, and the singing of “God Bless America” led by Michelle Stanton from Guardian Hospice.

During lunch, the seniors heard a presentation from Laverdia McCullough of the Tennessee Council on Aging & Disability about how to prepare for a disaster. She demonstrated how to use a bucket to carry all the essentials seniors need to survive a disaster.

Whitt’s Barbecue provided the meal, and The Rose Garden provided the roses for presentation to the participants.
