Seniors received flowers and sat outside to watch classic police cars and low riders as they came out to show their support. “This has been a hard time for everyone and we wanted to make sure to do this for the residents to get some entertainment out in the community for them,” Anna Sanchez, director of senior affairs for the City of Albuquerque, said.

Live entertainment from Los Trinos was also playing for the 90 seniors at the event today. The event was in celebration of Older Americans Month.
