Horton to speak on ‘Senior Downtown Living’ at next OLLI

Senior Downtown Living in Washington?” will be the topic presented by speaker John Horton at the Washington OLLI Chapter session Monday, February 24, at 2 p.m. at the Episcopal Parish House.

The possibility of converting a downtown building into apartments with special space and facilities for seniors is not brand new. It was a concept suggested a few years ago and its many advantages for food and other services have been discussed. Models exist. A specific idea will be presented in some detail, with discussion.

John Horton was born in Anniston, Ala. He graduated from high school in Bluefield, Va., and obtained a BBA from Georgia State University. He owns several buildings in Washington and has a serious interest in Washington development for its historic status. He has worked toward promoting the solid values he has found here. He and his wife renovated the building that houses Bee Southern and have an apartment on the upper floor.

The Washington OLLI Chapter extends an invitation to all members and other interested persons to attend. For more information, contact Ruth D. Rogers at 706-678-7366 or by e-mail at rdrogers@nu-z.net.
