Leo Turner,  75, spends his free time Lincoln Senior Center, 4712 Martin Luther King Ave., playing dominoes, eating lunch and talking with friends.

“It’s home away from home,” he said

“It is somewhere for me to go without the walls closing in on me. I get to meet new people, these are my old friends. So, we can sit down play a game together.”
