Arkansas state Rep. Mark Perry, D-Jacksonville, hands a check for $2,500 to Christy McMillion, executive director of the Jacksonville Senior Wellness & Activity Center. The funds are part of a state grant approved recently by the Central Arkansas Planning and Development District Board of Directors. McMillion said the center will use the funds to buy some kitchen and classroom equipment for senior citizen-related projects. During the brief ceremony last week, several senior citizens who frequently support the center were on hand. (Photo by Greg Rayburn)
