Gardner said that the center welcomes all citizens ages 60 and over and they enjoy bingo, board games and card games.

“Our slogan at the SOWEGA Council on Aging is living longer, living stronger and living safer,” Gardner continued,” Gardner said. “Our mission is to coordinate a system of services that promote the wellbeing and independence of older and disabled Georgians, helping them achieve healthy and self-sufficient lives.”
