Manistee County Council on Aging held a Senior Awareness Luncheon Day at the Manistee Armory October 18th. Seniors were provided with information regarding special services available to them in our community. Onekama National Honors Society students and the Onekama Soup Troop students were invited to help serve the seniors. They served coffee & milk& smiles and helped with clean up. The Soup troop kids dressed in their clown garb handed out hugs and I hugged a clown stickers to any ready takers. It was an enjoyable experience for all.
