They are in their 80s, 90s, even 100 years old, and they come here to see what the day offers. They gather for crafts, bingo and Bible study, but they also boogie to the beat of line dancing and get their groove on at Zumba gold classes. They all make their way to Mercy Endeavors Senior Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, to see friends, learn new skills and expand their horizons.
