This year’s observation of Senior Citizen’s Month drew to a close with a trip to Virgin Gorda and an island tour for the seniors. Over one hundred seniors from Tortola, Anegada, Jost Van Dyke and Virgin Gorda participated in the day’s activities. The activities included a morning tour of Virgin Gorda and a quick stop at Hog Haven for refreshments. The seniors also visited the Virgin Gorda destination sign for pictures and sightseeing. The tour day’s activities finished with lunch at Island Pot Restaurant, after which, there were games and giveaways for the seniors.
