Coalition Honors Older Women

By Wesley Martin
“Today’s event is to show our senior citizens, women 65 and older, that we love them,” said  Emma Dees a member of the Pensacola Chapter of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc.
“We appreciate the path that they have gone and the struggles that they have overcome so we can be what we are today,” Dees continued. “It’s a time where we want to praise and give honor to them … it’s a day to say you matter.”
Last Saturday, November 3, 100 Black Women of Pensacola held their 5th annual Senior Pampering Day at the St. John Missionary Baptist Church. The event, which featured both a finance and Medicare seminar, was fun-filled.
Praise dancers from Zion Hope PMC seemed to set the tone with a spirit-filled performance. The Providence Youth Choir  also provided selections.
Senior ladies were recognized by the coalition for  superlatives like: oldest senior, longest married, most children and most grandchildren. And along with door prizes, the ladies were treated to manicures and massages.
Pamela Brown, past president and program moderator for Senior Pampering Day, says the program is part of their national mission.
“One of our missions is to see to the needs of our senior ladies in our city and state,” Brown said, “because it is important to us that we understand what is going  on with them and help them be successful and nurture them.”
“Senior women are often over-looked,” Brown said. “We need them when we need them, but oftentimes, they’re so busy helping to take care of their children and grandchildren that no one seems to look after them or let them know that they’re loved outside of their immediate families. So our Senior Pampering Day is to let the senior women in Pensacola know that someone cares about you.”
