The County Times presents THRIVE, celebrating senior life after 55! We are pleased to partner with MAC, Inc. (Maintaining Active Citizens) The Area Agency on Aging. Join us for a wealth of information and a bit of fun too on Saturday, November 9, 2019. FREE ADMISSION!
Thrive was developed in 2017 as a collaborative effort by the Salisbury Independent and MAC, Inc. to connect the community with local businesses and services offering seniors the best ways for them to enjoy a long and comfortable life.
