The Office on Aging has an entertainment room, a mini-gym, a conference room, a karaoke room, a library, a music room, an arts and cultural room, a mini-movie room, among other activity rooms that can help improve the senior citizens physically, socially and spiritually, Office on Aging Director Walter Manglona said.

The manamko’ from Guam visit Saipan regularly but they were unable to be here last year after Typhoon Yutu hit Saipan, he added.
