Salute to our seniors is the motto at the Minot Senior Coalition.
The organization held
Mardi Gras in May for seniors to get out of the house or nursing homes and enjoy the company.
Each year is a new theme and this year’s Mardi Gras theme was requested by one of the seniors.
Guests got into a festive mood with bright necklaces and entertainment like bingo.
The Salute To Seniors President says that it’s a chance for them to meet up with their friends in an environment where they can feel like the kids.
“Well I love the seniors even though I’m a senior myself, I love seniors and I love having them get out of their homes, and getting out of their nursing homes, and assisted living and just enjoy life and just have fun.” said Lois Zahn, Salute To Seniors President.
Many of the guests left the Mardi Gras festivities with prizes.
