Dawson County seniors have something big to look forward to after an announcement at last week's board of commissioners meeting. Betty Ann Bagley, trustee of the estate of Pauline S. Ivey, presented the board on April 20 with a check for $700,000 to go towards a new senior center facility and programs. A proclamation read by Chairman Billy Thurmond stated that the donation to the senior center would be "for the construction, furnishing and equipping of a new building."
