Suffolk City Council members, Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia staff and others came together to serve in a different way on Monday

They all serve the public through the normal course of business, but at lunchtime at the East Suffolk Recreation Center, they served baked chicken, black-eyed peas, cabbage, baked apples and rolls to more than 50 seniors.

“It’s fun, and it’s good to sit and talk with the seniors and get a whole different perspective,” Mayor Linda T. Johnson said while tying her apron.
