Senior centers in Athens and Limestone County provide critical services such as Meals on Wheels and medical insurance counseling to the elderly.   The Athens-Limestone Foundation on Aging was established by Limestone County citizens to raise money to help support these centers, their services and other local organizations that provide assistance to the elderly. Over the years, the organization has expanded its support to include other organizations, programs, and individuals.

The successful Poke Sallet Follies is an annual fundraising event hosted by the foundation board each spring.  This 3-night dinner event provides entertainment and comedy while showcasing many local politicians and dignitaries.
