WESTOVER — Senior centers throughout Shelby County gathered in Westover Oct. 13 for an afternoon of fellowship and music. The Westover Senior Center hosted the third annual Music in the Park at 10 a.m. in Westover Park. The event included lunch and entertainment provided by the Vincent High School and Vincent Middle School choirs.

Both choirs preformed separately and together while senior center members ate lunch and socialized.

Several senior centers travelled to Westover to attend the event, including center members from Calera, Vincent and Columbiana.

Jo Mann, member of the Westover Senior Center said her favorite part of the event is socializing with the other centers.

“It’s a lot of fun,” she said. “We get to meet so many people and the music is always great.”
