Palestine Certified As Retirement Community

The city of Palestine joins 16 other Texas communities as a "Go Texan Certified Retirement Community".

This afternoon, State AG Commissioner Todd Staples recognized the city.

To become a certified retirement community, a city must fill out a rigorous application showing it can meet living, employment, health and safety standards for its citizens and visitors.

Other east Texas retirement communities include Athens, Longview, Pittsburg and Winnsboro.
