BAY ST. LOUIS

 If you’re looking for a place to loaf around, don’t go to the Hancock County Senior Center in Bay St. Louis, where The Dart landed this week. That crowd is always on the go.

“We believe in keeping our seniors active,” director Arlene Johnson said. “We don’t want them sitting in front of the TV all day.”

The center serves about 150 seniors age 60 and above. Coast Transit Authority buses provide transportation for residents of Waveland and Bay St. Louis five days a week and north and west Hancock County three days a week.The center serves breakfast and lunch to up to 30 clients a day and offers a variety of arts activities, such as quilting, painting and ceramics.
