This Friday, local seniors will be honored with a celebration at Creek Front Park in Hodgenville.
“The celebration of the seniors themselves is what this is about most importantly,” said Senior Center Director Karen Elliott. “They have helped make this community what it is. They’ve been down the rough road and I think that they can tell us a lot if we’d just listen to them more.”
