Dinah Wilson and Sharon Jones are on a mission to bring fun to the seniors of west Blount County. After speaking with the Hayden Town Council, they have agreed to use the Community Center on Tuesdays and Fridays for Senior Days.

The months of August, September, and October will serve as a trial period in order to measure its success. From 10 a.m. until 1 p.m., those aged 55 and older can participate in games, puzzles, prizes, snacks, drinks, book swaps, demonstrations, blood pressure checks, and more. They even have some special guest speakers lined up.

In conjunction with Senior Days, the duo has other special events planned as well. On the second Saturday of each month from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m., there will be a “Pickin’ and Potluck” for ages 18 and older. These days provide the perfect opportunity for getting to know one another and making friends.

Both ladies are enthusiastic about Senior Days and hope that the community is too.More information can be found on the Town of Hayden’s Facebook page or by emailing hayden411@gmail.com.
