FAYETTEVILLE, AR -- The city of Fayetteville is serving seniors in different ways.

"We do everything from play games, dance lessons, lunch Mondays through Fridays," said Cayla Wilson, Senior Center director.

The center is a great place to meet new people and have fun.

"We had a couple get married in the library. So they make long-lasting friends and it's a great way for the community to reach out and connect seniors," said Wilson.

With its Meals On Wheels program, the center helps the hungry, even if they can't leave their own home.

"We're serving about 120 meals a day and we have volunteers that come out and run those routes," said Wilson.

The center will have a health fair July 16. The health fair is going to be vendors from the community that come to the senior center and set up educational booths for seniors.
