Longview seniors treated to 'Picnic in the Park'

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - The "shrill of the pipes" was heard in Longview Tuesday at McWhorter Park.

Seniors were treated to a Picnic in the Park with bingo, food, and special music by the Longview Pipes and Drums from the Longview Fire Department.

The Piney Woods chapter of the Red Cross hosted this free event coinciding with Preparedness Month in September.

"This is something that we do annually just for seniors and we feature all different kinds of programs and topics for seniors," said the event coordinator. "Everything from police security, what to look for with scams for seniors and also fitness and nutrition for seniors."

Longview Regional Medical Center sponsored this year's event.
