This event is being held for the 48 Sparks senior citizens currently enrolled in the department’s Senior Phone Patrol program. In addition to root beer floats, a raffle, classic cars and a DJ, this year’s event will include a performance by David Hayes from the Harrah’s show “Sammy: Celebrate the Legacy” at 2 p.m.
The Senior Phone Patrol is a free program for senior citizens living in Sparks who prefer their independent living, or do not have family in the immediate area. Every day, the system automatically calls every senior citizen in the program to check their welfare. If the citizen does not personally answer the call, the system alerts police staff who then take necessary steps to locate and ensure the citizen’s well-being. Lives have been saved because of this valuable program.
