There is a Brownwood senior citizen program that's been operating in a new location now for several months.
The Camp Bowie Senior Citizens Center provides lunch and only requires a donation of two dollars.
The program gives senior citizens a chance to meet new people and socialize with one another.
"They're with their peers, people who are going through or are going through the same things they are dealing with, and that's just priceless," says program director, Cynthia Jackson.
William "Hickle" Oetken, a Camp Bowie Senior Citizens Center attendee says, "I love the people, that's the first thing we did, I mean everyday we come and we go around and introduce ourselves and write their names on the menu."
The reason for the center is to provide lunch and Jackson says they average about 120 people in the dining room for lunch every day.
"When you're home alone, you don't eat the right foods, we get that one meal five days a week, and we need those vegetables," Oetken says.
"That's one of the things we hear most often, that they appreciate very much having the opportunity to have a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables," Jackson says.
Lunch is served at noon, but many come early to play games or shoot pool.
The Brownwood Senior Citizens Program also serves meals to those senior citizens who are home bound; a donation of two dollars is requested.
