Senior Fest

Area seniors are informed and entertained at Healthy Seniors Fun Fest, held annually at John A. Logan College. Sponsored by the Healthy Senior Action Team of the Franklin-Williamson Healthy Community Coalition, the event features more than informational booths, vendor products and services. It offers seniors who attend a full day of activities including a sit down meal, a live DJ show, and entertainment. The main event is the dance competition. The festivities are hosted or MC-ed by Patrick Laws, social service coordinator for Carbondale's Senior Adult Services Center, along with his side kick WSIU’s Roz Rice. Christy Boggess and Paula Reeves of the Healthy Senior Action Team explains the origin of the event.
