A visit to the Jones County Senior Center on any given day could now include hearing a couple of hymns on a piano that is there because of an unexpected group of donors.

Jones County’s constitutional officers keep a low profile in the community, although they are essential to the day-to-day operations of the county. But it was these men – Sheriff Butch Reece, Probate Judge Mike Greene, Superior Court Clerk Bart Jackson, and Tax Commissioner Brian Jackson – who came forward to donate money to purchase a piano for the Senior Center.

County Administrator Mike Underwood, who was the fifth donor, said each of the officers agreed without hesitation when he called them about the need of the seniors at the center.

He spoke to the seniors at the center about the donations at a gathering to celebrate the new piano Aug. 18.

“Your constitutional officers stepped up to the plate because they want you to have music in your lives,” he said.

Reece and Brian Jackson attended the event to represent the group. Bart Jackson and Greene were both tied up with court.
