At the event, there were booths for health information, tools in case of an emergency, and even some fitness activities for people.

“Oh my goodness I did the aging, the library, nutrition, Alzheimer’s, [and] stroke [booth],” said Cynthia Goodrum, a Pulaski resident.

“It’s great because we just need to as a community come together and have that time together and know that we’ve got each other’s backs—especially with health issues,” said Kimberly Knapp, yoga and Pilates instructor at the Pulaski YMCA.

They said they plan to have this event every year for seniors in the county.
