Manila Senior Citizens enjoyed a fun day on Monday, March 11, with a beanbag baseball tournament and hot dog buffet.

Manila seniors had planned to host a group from Blytheville for the tournament but they were unable to come so the Manila teams divided up for the game.

Members of the Big Lake Doilies defeated the Big Lake Bean Bags (BLBB) by a score of 14-8. The BLBB team members said the season is just beginning and they will get their revenge.

Over 50 in attendance enjoyed a hot dog buffet with all the trimmings. Activity director Carol Yarbro expressed her appreciation to everyone who participated in the fun day. She encourages all senior citizens to join them at the Manila Community Airport Center for exercise, lunch, and fellowship.

"This is a wonderful place to spend the mornings for area senior citizens," Yarbro said.
