May is Older Americans Month and in an effort to directly engage the seniors in his district Congressman John Sarbanes made a stop at Parkville Senior Center Thursday morning.
Sarbanes, who stopped by a senior center in Arbutus on Wednesday, took the time to talk to about 25 seniors in Parkville about social security, medicare and medicaid before taking a brief tour of the center.
"It's important to get a sense of what my constituent's perspective is on the issues of the day," Sarbanes told the group.
"It's up to people like myself to try to stay connected and down to earth."
The Congressman was impressed by the exercise facilities at the senior center, and by the delivery of service in general.
"I've got to thank Parkville Senior Center for being such a resource to this community," he said. "Centers like this one are going to become absolutely critical to preserving the quality of life for seniors."
