Seniors at Newton County Senior Services Center at the Turner Lake Recreation Complex, from left, Hugh Smith, Irene Alexander and Mildred Scott are limbering up to "rock around the clock," as they take part in the center's 2009 Rock-a-Thon today and Friday. The group is taking pledges from supporters for $5 for every 15 minutes a senior rocks; $10 for 30 minutes; $15 for 45 minutes and $20 for an hour. The fundraiser is set to be held from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. today and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday. The fundraiser is held in conjunction with Older Americans Month, which will conclude with the Tri-County Picnic at Turner Lake on May 29. To make a pledge, call 770-787-0038 or go by the center.
