Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, the Killeen Senior Centers remain closed to the public, but the they are still helping out seniors in our community who could use a treat.

According to a press release from Killeen Director of Communications Hilary Shine, senior citizens are invited to the Killeen Community Center for free root beer floats this Thursday (Sept. 24th) from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM. The Killeen Community Center is located at 2201 E. Veterans Memorial Blvd.

To assure the safety of participants, seniors will stay in their vehicles for curbside delivery. Staff will prepare floats in one-time use containers and deliver them wearing masks and gloves.

As for the Senior Centers in Killeen, when the city announces reopening plans we'll be sure to pass the information along to you here. If you've been cooped up in the house, step out for a minute and enjoy a treat this week.

In the meantime, more information about Killeen senior centers and programs is  available when you visit KilleenTexas.gov/Seniors.
