|A full house marks today's event|
Every year, Gamma Pi's Senior Citizens Banquet is one of the most anticipated events in Prince George's County. Men and women who paved the way for today's generations look forward to a relaxing Saturday afternoon featuring a hot meal served at the table, exciting door prizes, live musical entertainment and a word from The Word. In all, the event is one of the many ways that Gamma Pi chapter pays homage to Prince George's County seniors who are often among the most forgotten segment of our population. Today's gathering at the familiar site of Gethsemane United Methodist Church in Capital Heights did not disappoint as nearly 100 seniors joined the Super Chapter for the 2010 version of the Seniors Banquet. Among those in attendance was State House Delegate Jolene Ivey (District 47).

In a first, the chapter sponsored a very informative presentation on Stalking and Domestic Violence as it relates to seniors,who are often tripped up by shifty schemes devised in the Digital Information Age. The presentation was given by Barbara Givens, a domestic violence support coordinator in the county and head of Seniors Against Stalking and Domestic Violence.

Finally, portions of the program were streamed live on the Internet via the chapter's new Ustream channel and remain available for re-viewing.
