Several seniors who attend the Chaneyvillle Senior Center near Zachary every Monday and Tuesday often are joined by an instructor to quilt on Wednesdays.

The site is one of about 11 East Baton Rouge Parish Council on Aging centers.

Seniors with their own equipment, such as a sewing machine, rotary cutters, seam rippers and cutting mat, are invited to participate.

The group meets from 9 a.m. to about 11:45 a.m.

Council on Aging members from Baywood, Pride and Zachary often attend the center at 13211 Jackson Road.
