Seniors Rally For A Senior Center

By  | 

Local seniors citizens went to the park Sunday afternoon for some fun in the sun.

The senior advocacy group Amigos del Valle de Brazos sponsored the event.

Members of the organization said they are trying to raise awareness about the need for a senior citizens center in Bryan.

State Representative Fred Brown was among those in attendance and pledged his support to help seniors establish a place for themselves.

"It's just important for them to have that connection," Brown said. "A place that they can call their own and be able to go and enjoy activities with other citizens."

Organizers said they will work with Brown, city leaders and corporations to make the center a reality.
