Ascension Council on Aging will be sponsoring a Poker Walk starting at 9:30 a.m. on July 14 at the Gonzales Senior Center, 526 S. Irma Blvd.
The walk will focus on the benefits of walking and continuing an active lifestyle as seniors age. At the walk, each senior participating will get a card at each station providing information on health benefits and resources.
The council will partner with local companies to help seniors become educated in the process of aging gracefully and in good health, organizers said. Vendors include Acadian On Call, St. Catherine’s Hospice, Chateau St. James, Louisiana Health Care Connections, Lexington Specialty Services, Jefferson Community Care Center, Cannon Hospice, Baton Rouge Behavioral Hospital, Louisiana Relay and Walgreens.
All participants will receive prizes and goodie bags. There is no charge for entry. For more information, call Shelley Caudill at (225) 621-5770.
