The heat can be unbearable during the summer months, and that is why the City has teamed up with Reliant Energy to provide you and your family with a cool place to hang out.

Not only do you get to beat the heat, but you also get to socialize, exercise, watch movies and even eat free snacks. The Greenwood Senior Center and the Lindale Senior Center are both places you and your family can go to get away from the heat and not have to use your own electricity to stay cool.

The centers will be open from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday. The two centers will be participating in the Beat the Heat initiative from now until Oct. 4.

For more information, you can call the Greenwood Senior Center at 361-826-1368 and the Lindale Senior Center at 361-854-4508.
