Around 600 Copiah County senior citizens enjoyed the first annual Triad/S. A. L. T. Senior Appreciation Luncheon on Wednesday, July 15, 2010, held at the Durr Wise Center on the campus of Camp Wesley Pines in Gallman. The event, sponsored by the Copiah County Sheriff Harold Jones and a host of public and private sponsors, far exceeded the expectations of the event organizers and planners.
Live gospel music and a rousing performance by the Dixieland Cloggers kept the seniors on their toes and upbeat while the meal was prepared and served. A large number of public and private vendors were on hand to provide information and guidance on a host of senior-related topics.
Most of the deputies from the Copiah County sheriff’s office were on hand to assist with the luncheon, serving meals and drinks, answering questions and handling much of the shuffling of tables and chairs and such.
