An assortment of tried-and-true activities have been planned for the upcoming Senior Citizens Day at the 2011 Fall Festival.

The day generally starts with a mini health fair featuring various booths and information from local agencies and businesses, followed by bingo and a meal plus an additional program or activity.

Past Senior Citizens Days have included recognition of outstanding Hopkins County seniors as well as the oldest residents, Hopkins County Heroes awards in honor of those who served their country in the armed forces, and a “Senior Citizens Got Talent” contest.

Contributing to the mini health fair which begins at 2 p.m. Sept. 13 are: At Home Health, blood pressure checks; BT Medical, pulse ox test; Hopkins County Memorial Hospital, cholesterol checks; Wound Care at Memorial Hospital; Visiting Angels, information about veterans benefits; Life Care Medical, blood sugar checks and diabetic shoes; Rock Creek Health and Rehab, Wii fit; Jane Goldsmith, chair massages; Dr. Robert Lenington, thyroid, carotid artery and venous insufficiency screenings; and Vibrant Home Care, balance and fall screenings.

Bingo, which begins at 3 p.m. Fall Festival Senior Citizens Day, will have “lots of donated prizes to win.”

While there is no fee to enter the Arts Show and Contest or to look at the awards in the lobby, but there is a $7 fee for those who plan to enjoy the other Senior Citizens Day activities. The cost covers bingo and a meal served at 5 p.m. being cooked by Hopkins County Genealogical Society. (The Fall Festival is HCGS’s biggest annual fundraiser.}

The $7 fee helps offset costs associated with Fall Fest Senior Citizens Day.
