GALLOWAY– There was something for everyone at Galloway 2nd Annual Senior Health Fair on Tuesday, June 24, where seniors got traffic safety tips, their blood pressure taken, listened to speakers on healthy eating and Alzheimer’s and even took a time out for a yoga class.

Seniors perused the tables at the center located at 621 W. White Horse Pike, took pamphlets on better eating, traffic safety, chiropractic care and home health care. The highlight of the day was the unveiling of a new kitchen. Much of the funded needed for the Senior Center’s improvements came from Atlantic County.
“The Senior Center is so nice. I love coming here for bingo and cards. They also provide lunch,” said Rose Schairer, 88, of Galloway, as she glanced at reading materials on the various tables. “I just got my blood pressure taken and it was perfect.”
