The Council on Aging is a nonprofit organization serving the aging population of Etowah County. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for seniors age 55 and older and disabled persons age 50 and older. We strive to ensure all seniors in Etowah County have the education and information to be safe and healthy in mind, body, and soul.

The Council on Aging is hosting the Speakeasy Casino Night fundraiser on August 20, 2021 at 210 At The Tracks in Gadsden. This is a BYOB event, and 1920s attire is encouraged.
