This is a great thing to have for our Seniors and disabled. May I suggest that functions such as this would be better if they were held the first week of the month since most of the elderly and disabled would be more financially able to enjoy this type of function. In todays economy with the price of gas etc .I know that 16.00 dollars is not all that much but if you are on a fixed income it might be. Just a suggestion..
