The community and Jack Daniel’s have been working to help the Senior Center grow. Under new leadership, there have been many new offerings at the Moore County Senior Activity Center in the last few months. With the help of a group of volunteers from Jack Daniel’s, the dining room received a fresh new coat of paint, and the old run-down shuffleboard shelters and old shed were taken down. While the volunteers painted and cleared out the run down structures, Jack’s “Barrel Man” Kevin Sanders stopped by to see the progress. After being shown the shuffleboard area out front in disuse by Center Director Kellie Sandefur, Sanders came up with the idea of putting a raised garden bed over it, which was already ideally level for a garden due to its previous usage. The plan was set: build a raised garden bed using a French drain system with gravel to help with drainage and fill with a soil composite of compost, manure, and the material left after burning whiskey barrels. “Kevin doesn’t do anything halfway. It is something that will be there for years and years to come. The members are already thinking about what to plant next spring. It is a wonderful gift!” Sandefur said.
