Senior citizens fashion show planned
FLINT TWP.— The public is invited to a Senior Citizens Fashion Show at 6:30 p.m. Saturday hosted by the Genesee Gardens senior community, 4495 Calkins Road at Linden. Fashions provided by Dressbarn will be modeled by about six community residents, said Matthew Reilly, community sales leader. The just-for-fun show is an example of activities held for residents and to interest future residents, he said. The show will be held in the community atrium. Admission is free and light refreshments will be served. Also everyone age 50 an older who tours the community can enter a drawing to win a 50-inch flatscreen TV at the end of the month, Reilly said. —R.S.
