FERNDALE, Wash. – The Whatcom Council on Aging is holding its 15th annual “Senior Day in the Park” today from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Hovander Homestead Park in Ferndale.

The non-profit’s nutrition manager Julie Meyers says the day is not just for seniors.

The Whatcom Council on Aging will also celebrate a $25,000 grant from Wal-Mart’s Washington State Giving Council.

Meyers says they have suffered from federal sequester cuts and the grant money will help them continue to serve meals to seniors in Whatcom and San Juan counties through the rest of this year.

The grant will be officially presented at today’s event.

There is a suggested $5 donation to attend.
