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.
