National Senior Citizen Day

A proclamation issued by President Ronald Reagan in August 1988 inaugurated the celebration of National Senior Citizen Day each year, “Throughout our history, older people have achieved much for our families, our communities, and our country. That remains true today, and gives us ample reason…to reserve a special day in honor of the senior citizens who mean so much in our land.”

The Churchill County Senior Center, in recognition of our seniors, invites you to join us in a heartfelt salute to our older citizens on Thursday, National Senior Citizens Day 2014.

If planning on attending lunch at the senior center on that day, please RSVP by calling 775-423-7096. Suggested donation for seniors age 60 and older is $3, while those 59 and younger pay $6. Individuals are asked to come to the center, located at 310 E. Court St. in Fallon, from 10:30 -11 a.m. to sign in. Soup is served from 11-11:30 a.m. with lunch - featuring roast beef, mashed potatoes, broccoli salad, sliced melon and carrot cake - available from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

In addition to lunch, CCSC will welcome special guests including city of Fallon and Churchill County government officials, members of the Coalition for Senior Citizens Board and Anne Pershing, former editor of the Lahontan Valley News and current Reno Gazette Journal columnist.
