Walgreens hosted bingo games Tuesday for seniors. The event included snacks, a question and answer session on immunizations, providing information on Medicare, and conducting blood pressure checks. The Shelbyville Walgreens is one of four stores in a district that take turns doing senior days on the first Tuesday of the month, manager Jennifer Damron said. Leticia Burnley, admissions and marketing coordinator for Glen Oaks Health and Rehabilitation, said she brought some seniors to the bingo game. She also is involved in hosting bingo at the Shelbyville/Bedford County Senior Citizens Center, she said.
