Digital First: Senior Citizen Center reopens a little over a year


VICKSBURG, Miss. (WJTV) – After being closed for more than a year, the Vicksburg Senior Citizen’s Center reopened. Jennifer Harper, the center’s director, said she excited about this new beginning.

“This is a great moment for the seniors, because they’ve been confined to their apartments or homes or just being grounded,” said Harper.

She said seniors could experience depression or lose communication skills if they are not active.

When it comes to the next several months, Harper said, “I hope to grow a little bit at a time and get the calendar back active like it was prior to the pandemic.”
