The Jo Story Senior Center for Active Adults recently unveiled its painted rockfish as part of the Roanoke Valley Rocks campaign through the Halifax County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
The fish was painted by artist Yulonda Pierce and encourages visitors who come by the center to never stop growing.
The mission is to provide services that promote wellness, encourage independence, provide transportation and social and recreational activities that enhance the quality of life for older adults.
The center is open to anyone 55 years of age and up. Seniors who live within 2 miles of the city limits of Roanoke Rapids can also be picked up to take part in their free programs including, exercise classes, weekly shopping trips, Wednesday bingo, a library, game room, an open fitness room, computer room and knitting.
Tai Chi and yoga classes are also available for $10 per month.
