PIKEVILLE — A group of senior residents from the Wilson Housing Authority took a spring trip to the Nahunta Pork Center on Thursday thanks to a lift — literally — from the Wilson Police Department’s Police Athletics and Activities League.
PAL provided the vans and drivers to take the group of 11 seniors to shop at the “Pork King,” and enjoy a buffet lunch at Fred Chason’s Grandsons in Smithfield. Accompanying the housing authority seniors on their trip were Sgt. Chelsea Sanders, Senior Police Officer Angie Harold and Senior Police Officer Kolly Burritt.
The seniors on the trip were from all three of the Wilson Housing Authority’s public housing communities and its housing choice voucher program. The Wilson Housing Authority and the Police Athletics and Activities League partner several times a year to offer day trips to the housing authority’s seniors.
