In 1972, the Seniors Act established the National Seniors Nutrition Program and on Wednesday that program was celebrated at the Senior Activity Center in Pocatello.
Music and dance marked the 50sand Birthday party.
Over the past two years, the Activity Center has served over 58,000 meals both on-site and curbside. Wednesday lunches include musical entertainment and Friday Jackpot Bingo right after lunch.
Wednesday’s special program included remarks from dignitaries from the Town of Pocatello, Town of Chubbuck and Bannock County Commissioners.
Bannock County Commissioner Jeff Hough marked the occasion with a demonstration of one of the activity center’s programs, Rock Steady Boxing.
As I sit and look around today,” said Commissioner Hough, “my heart is once again full, because once again the opportunity for you to come here and socialize is so important to you. And I’m grateful that we have this facility, you can come and do it.”
The activity center not only offers meals for seniors Tuesday through Friday, but also opportunities to socialize and participate in fun and healthy activities.
