Cherokee Recreation and Parks Agency was recently recognized for its help in hosting in the 2013 Senior Extravaganza.
The agency was commended for its service by Cherokee Triad - S.A.L.T., or Seniors and Law Enforcement Together, during the event, which had a slew of activities and vendors on hand that caters to senior citizens in the community.
Over 600 seniors visited with the 77 vendors, organizations and agencies during the event, which was held in May. Over $3,500 was raised for SALT Programs.
Cherokee Triad - S.A.L.T. is a collaborative effort among local police agencies and other organizations that work to educate and inform residents about resources that can help them live a better quality of life.
They regularly hold programs and meetings to educate seniors about topics such as identity fraud and other concerns specific to the older Cherokee County community.
