Frizzle has been hired as the Seniors Coordinator for the duration of the grant received from New Horizons Senior Program, funded by the Federal Government, which continues until March 2016. Two lunch programs with local speakers have already happened. The next is on Tuesday, June 9 at Elks Hall. Coffee is ready at 10:30 a.m. and at 11 a.m. council members will speak on past, present and future senior initiatives and are happy to answer questions. All seniors are invited; lunch is provided. There is no cost to attend, and fares for seniors to ride the transit bus from Evergreen Acres and return is covered.
