Senior Centers in Sebastian County Provide Meals with Membership

A few years ago, Billy Wise didn’t think he’d want to go to the Fort Smith Senior Activity Center after he was invited by friends from church.

“I thought, ‘I don’t know, man … but I’m a little older, I’m 75,” Wise said. “You fall in love with these people because everyone here has the same problem as you. There are people with cancer, arthritis, rheumatism and everything. I have cancer and it’s a good place to be. ”

He and his wife Ruth Wise, 71, residents of Barling, emphasized the importance of community.

“People believe in God and before eating, they always pray,” Ruth said, adding that prayer includes specific requests from those present. “… If they close it, we would be lost.”
