BALLINGER– Saturday, July 13, 2013, a fund raiser benefiting the Runnels County Senior Citizen Center will be held at the Ballinger Community Center. A dinner and dance will be held from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Music will be provided by Roy Bowman and Rough Country Band.

This is a great opportunity to support the senior citizens in Ballinger and Runnels County, and enjoy a delicious meal while spending a good time dancing.

Senior citizen centers everywhere are facing difficult times from budget cuts and menu changes in order to comply with federal and state dietary regulations.

Recently the West Texas Council of Governments revealed that last year the COG absorbed a 10 percent budget cut by reducing staff positions. A new budget cut ranging from 7 to 10 percent is expected for this year. Now it’s time for the community to step up and help the elderly citizens in Runnels County, so please come and join the fun and help support the Senior Citizen Center by attending this fund raiser.
