Our Town SWAG is fun & feisty!

EFFINGHAM, Ill. (WCIA) -- This group of women in Our Town has a motto: Laughter is the best medicine.

They meet once a month at the library. They all have something in common. With the women of SWAG, it's never a dull moment.

"Seniors With Attitude Group" has plenty of attitude to go around. The woman say, despite getting older, they still always have a good time.

"We all have attitude. We all know something and everybody knows something and sometimes we know something about nothing."

If you're looking for a group to belong to, this one might just be the perfect fit.

"We just have a good time when we come and it's something different each time."

"For one thing, just the companionship and meeting new people."

"We discuss books, we watch movies, we make beautiful flower arrangements, like today."

Members say it's something they're excited to come to.

"I live by myself and it gives me something extra to look forward to and I just enjoy it."

The women have a different activity at each meeting. No matter what they do when they're together, they say it's always a good time.

"Laughter is the best medicine and, when you're here, you don't think of your aches and pains."

It tends to be a girls only gathering.

"We've had a few men come, but they don't come back."

But, they welcome anyone who is interested because age is just a number for these ladies.

"We love the camaraderie and we learn from each other."

The group also has a monthly drawing for a Niemerg's gift certificate and plenty of donuts and coffee.
