Donnelly in race for Honorary Mayor representing Senior Center

FALLBROOK – Fallbrook resident, Chamber of Commerce member and local business owner Tami Donnelly is running for the title of Honorary Mayor of Fallbrook.

Donnelly, who owns the Hair Lounge on Main Ave., said she "loves the idea of running to support a charity" and has selected the Fallbrook Senior Citizens Service Club as her non-profit.

Donnelly said she specifically wants to raise awareness of the Senior Center's home delivered meal program, which benefits local home-bound seniors in the Fallbrook area, many of which are retired military.

Many of Donnelly's family members served in the military and she says she feels blessed to have had both her great grandparents and grandparents in her life well into her adulthood. She added that she has a special love for the senior population and applauds the Senior Center for its services.

Donnelly noted some seniors in the Fallbrook community live alone, have no way to get out of their homes, and are unable to cook a meal for themselves.

"A hot, home-cooked meal is a comfort for these seniors," said Donnelly. "The meals provided by the Senior Center may be the only hot meal they get that day, and the interaction with the friendly person delivering it may be their only face-to-face conversation of the day."
