12TH ANNUAL FREE SENIOR CITIZEN DAY AT THE DETROIT ZOO

 PONTIAC, Mich., Aug. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Thousands of metro Detroit- area senior citizens are expected to attend the Detroit Zoo on Wednesday, Aug. 25, to celebrate the 12th annual Isabella Fiesselmann Day, sponsored by Perry Drug Stores, Inc. (NYSE: PDS).
 Three metro Detroit Area Agencies on Aging will have representatives in the Zoo's picnic area to answer questions and provide information on senior citizen services.
 Seniors can enjoy the camaraderie of new friends while riding on the Zoofari Tractor Train or strolling leisurely through the gardens.
 Perry will provide free admission for all seniors and their escorts, free parking and free tours on the Zoofari Coach Tractor Train. Valuable coupons and a Perry gift bag for all seniors will also be distributed.
 This special day for all seniors, 62 and older, began 12 years ago when the late Isabella Fiesselmann, then 92, wrote to the Detroit Zoo officials, saying she "longed to see the zoo once more." Her wish was granted and she was personally escorted around the zoo, which later declared an annual day in her honor.
 Concession stands offer a variety of foods, or seniors can pack and enjoy a box lunch in the Zoo's picnic grounds.
 The Zoo is open between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.
 For more information call Ralph Browning at the Detroit Zoo at 313-399-7001.
