Senior Center launches its own website
By FAITH HUFFMAN, News-Telegram News Editor
July 18, 2008 - Have you ever wondered just what goes on at the Senior Citizens Activity Center, or better yet, what it's all about? Can't keep up with when your club meets there?
If you have a computer with Internet access, the answer to those and other questions is available with just a few mouse clicks. The Senior Citizens Center is now online, with lots of information at your fingertips. Just launch your Web browser and type in www.sulphurspringsseniorcenter.com to see for yourself.
The domain name was recently purchased by center director Karon Weatherman to help keep people informed about the goings-on at the building, located at 150 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. The center is both a meeting hub for several organizations and a site with regular activities for the over-50 set.
Weatherman said the website is already getting good response.
"I have been really excited about the website because I have had people calling me from different parts of the state to ask me questions about the Senior Citizens Center for their parents that still live here," Weatherman said. "They Googled and found my site. They told me that it was very informative."
The site includes a welcome screen and contact information, as well as links for senior-related service agencies such as Medicare, Social Security Administration and AARP.
The pull-down menu allows site visitors to select from special events for the next three months, details about the center, September special events, monthly calendars, 2008 senior citizens prom pictures, daily activities and club meetings, and the Meal-A-Day menu.
For people who have ideas or suggestions that would make the website better, or if something they were looking for wasn't included, Weatherman welcomes feedback.
" Please, go check out the website and let me know if you have any suggestions," Weatherman says. "Let me know if you can think of other things that might be good to have on the website."
