Brighter times are returning for senior citizens in Owensboro, Kentucky, with the local senior center once again welcoming guests.

The Senior Community Center of Owensboro-Daviess County welcomed back locals with open arms during its grand re-opening event on Wednesday, which featured all of the things area seniors had been missing out on during the pandemic.

The grand reopening event featured a health fair, a cookout lunch courtesy of Owensboro Health/Morrison's Foods, music, bingo, and more.

According to the senior center, nearly 170 seniors came out to participate in the day's events.

The Bluegrass State allowed senior centers to reopen to the public as early as June 11, but many have waited until recently to do so.

Just another day in paradise; afternoon highs again topped out in the mid to low 70s across the Tri-State under a mix of sun and clouds. If you have plans out and about this evening, make sure to grab a jacket before you head out - after seeing temperatures near 64° around dinnertime, the mercury will dip to 57° by 10 o'clock before falling all the way back down into the mid to upper 40s early Wednesday morning. Sure, tomorrow morning's lows of 47° will represent our mildest start to a day since this past Friday, but it's still going to make for a cool start to our midweek nonetheless. The combination of sunshine and southerly winds however, will help drive temperatures back into the low 70s by lunchtime - if you're planning on lunching outside Wednesday, make sure not to do so in the shade. Wind gusts near 15 mph at times during our lunch hour will make for a chilly brown bag lunch outdoors.
