Smiling and laughter
Sandra Wix is the director of the Senior Citizens Center. “One of the best things about my job is seeing all the laughter and smiling that’s a big part of coming to the Senior Center,” she says. “Most of all, we all have a lot of fun here. There’s a lot of socializing, and we’re always adding more folks and activities. We invite everyone to come down to the Senior Center to be a part of the fun and fellowship, and to see what we’re all about.”
