Macon Mayor, City Council Host Luncheon for Seniors | Community Spirit
Mayor Robert Reichert and City Council are hosting an appreciation lunch for seniors on Tuesday, December 18 at the Macon Centreplex beginning at 11:30 a.m. There will be door prizes, a senior choir, and remarks by local officials. In the past, attendance has been approximately 500 people.
“This is an opportunity to thank people for their years of dedication and service to our community and to let them know that we are where we are today because of them,” says Keith Moffett in the Mayor’s Office.”
The Macon-Bibb County Authority will provide transportation, and people can call them at 478-803-2500 to arrange a ride.
Earlier this year, AARP and the World Health Organization named Macon-Bibb County as the first Age-Friendly Community in Georgia. An Age-Friendly Community is designed to establish an inclusive and accessible environment that encourages active and healthy aging. It also proactively focuses on those elements of communities that enhance independent living with a goal of having older citizens take a more active role in their communities.
The Age-Friendly Communities program provides an excellent opportunity to broaden support from other agencies and organizations for much of the work that is currently underway in the Macon-Bibb area. We hope that you or your designee can attend this introductory meeting to gain more information on Age-Friendly Communities and what it means for Macon-Bibb.
