  1. Stacy, think of the savings. You’ll get the senior citizen discount plus the under 12 one. Graduation parties will be easy to plan. You can use the activity room at the nursing home and order from the dining hall. Who knows, maybe you could even have a roaring game of bingo. Seriously, really thrilled for you guys.
