Senior Nutrition Center Celebrates Thanksgiving

It was a day of giving thanks a bit early.

Six months ago the Meals On Wheels organization in Longview debuted its Senior Nutrtion Center.

The program started so the elderly could have a place to go and enjoy a home-cooked meal.

Today the center cooked its first 'Thanksgiving Feast'.

Organizer, Tamara Pipkin, says the group of seniors who come for the daily meals have become just like family.

"To me they're like my own family. They're some people that had been here since the beginning in July and they have grown to be like my own grandparents," says Pipkin.

Lunches are served daily at the center.

It's located at the Trinity Episcopal church near Good Shepherd Medical center in Longview.
