Brookland holds luncheon of seniors

BROOKLAND, AR (KAIT) – The Brooklyn City Hall was the placeto be this afternoon.

City representatives are working with Absolute CareManagement to host a monthly luncheon at the city hall for senior citizens. Jana Wineland with Absolute Care Management says they decided toput this together because some local seniors are isolated.

"The community here is small.  They don't have a lot of access to go intoJonesboro, Paragould.  They needed aplace to come hang out and meet each other," Wineland said.

Brookland seniors gottogether for some good food, games and prizes. Norma Hays of Brookland said sheis thrilled that the luncheons have started.

"I think it's a greatopportunity for all the senior citizens of Brookland to get together and get tovisit with each other and have a good lunch," Hays said.

The luncheons will takeplace on the third Tuesday of every month at the Brookland City Hall.
