A roomful of seniors filled the fellowship hall at Walnut Street Church of Christ Friday as they gathered to celebrate a special occasion: the tenth anniversary of Senior Circle in Greenville.

Those attending enjoyed a buffet meal of barbecue sandwiches, potato salad, baked beans, salad and cake with fresh strawberries and grapes, along with a chance for some sweet fellowship together.

Senior Circle chapter advisor, Linda Holley, encouraged everyone to sign up for a chance to win one of the door prizes, with a large array of fresh flowers and potted plants available to take home.

Harlon Burton of Tennessee, a familiar face at many local events, shared his musical talents with his audience, singing gospel songs, hymns and requested classics. He also performed instrumentals such as “Last Date” and “Tennessee Waltz” on his keyboard.

Senior Circle at L.V. Stabler Memorial Hospital is part of a nationwide, non-profit group open to adults 50 and over.

“We offer quite a lot to our members – in-hospital benefits, health seminars, discounts on prescriptions, vision care and emergency response systems, a quarterly magazine, and other privileges,” Holley said.

Throughout the year, the local group offers seasonal and holiday get-togethers and travel opportunities.

“We’ve had a lot of fun, education and fellowship these first ten years, and we look forward to much more of the same in the next ten years,” Holley said.
