The Carver Senior Citizens Club had its Annual Christmas Luncheon on Tuesday, Dec. 11 at the Carl H. Russell Sr. Community Center.

The club unveiled its new banner, which features the images of   Dr. George Washington Carver, the late world renowned scientist for whom the club is named, and former Mayor Pro-Tempore Carl H. Russell Sr., for whom the rec center where the Club regularly meets is named. The banner will be displayed at the club’s meetings and special events.

Carmen Russell represented the Russell family at the program, thanking the club for honoring her father. Other special guests included Rev. Touré C. Marshall, senior pastor of Grace Presbyterian Church (USA).
