"Celebrating the Ages"

Join us for a celebration of the ages during our annual Senior Citizens Day Celebration on Monday, May 13th hosted at the Marion Senior Center. Lunch is being catered by L.A. Catering and will be served promptly at noon. The menu features Gourmet Cole Slaw, Green Beans Almondine, Red Skinned Mashed Potatoes, Pot Roast of Beef Portabello (with a Mushroom Sauce), Rolls and Butter, Peach Cobbler with Whipped Cream, Ice Tea, Coffee and Water.

At the conclusion of dinner, we will present this year's "Pearl R. Roberts Award" during a special awards ceremony, where we will recognize several senior volunteers for their outstanding commitment, selfless giving and community service.

Special Entertainment for this year's event is professional actress and comedienne, Mary Faktor. Mary has been delighting audiences across the country for 30 years with her popular one-woman comedy show, "The Six Ages of Woman". Besides laughing off their stress, the audience leaves her show uplifted, like they too, can realize their dreams.

There will also be an abundance of door prizes given away during the event, compliments of our corporate sponsors and many friends of the Center.
