    During a luau at the center in Georgetown on Thursday, Willy Braunstein and Hilda Harned became Mr. and Mrs. Scott County Senior Citizens.
    Braunstein said there are nice folks at the center, and the Ohio native has been going there for about 10 years.

    “It’s a good group. We try to stick together as a group. Senior citizens should stick together,” he said.
