Summer Senior Barbecue
They were turning up the heat for local seniors in Gulfport today, all part of the second annual Summer Senior Barbecue for Harrison County seniors.
Many stepped on the dance floor to show off their two-step while others chowed down on some burgers, courtesy of the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department cooking team.
Today’s event was packed with food, fun and music and afforded yet another opportunity for our local residents who are in the golden years of life to shine. Louada Hanson is attending the barbecue. She said, “We’ve come in and listened to some of the music and watched some of the people dance and just visiting.”
Carolyn Cunningham is attending the barbecue. She said, “Oh I’ve walked around, I’ve talked to different people. I have asked questions from some of the vendors and I’ve eaten a piece of cake, getting ready for lunch now.”
Around 500 seniors came out for the event put on by Boyington Health and Rehabilitation Center and the City of Gulfport.
