Please join us on Thursday, February 27th at 1 PM

 

Marketing Coordinator for Bane Care, Denise Vigna will be our guest speaker at the senior center to discuss how to be prepared for an unexpected hospitalization.  Many feel unprepared or do not understand what it entails and how coverage works.  This is a very helpful information, so mark your calendars, if you need transportation call 528-4773  a week ahead and let Polly of Joan know you will be taking the van, the senior center will be responsible for your transportation cost for this event.

Be Counted!!          

Did you know that part of the funding that we get for the Council on Aging (for the senior center)  depends on the census numbers? It is very important that everyone is counted, so that we don’t lose funding.

On Thursday, January 23rd at 11:30 -Census Bureau Specialist Mark Sabastino will be here. He’s a representative from the census bureau and will discuss the different ways to be counted, where you should be counted, part time residents , etc., so don’t miss this informative  session. Mark will be explaining how to apply for a job as a census taker.
