“A conversation on aging issues” to be held in Atlantic


July 6th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

Officials with the Iowa Department on Aging says several community conversations will take place across the state this summer, to give people an opportunity to understand the aging network, and the IDA an opportunity to understand the concerns you might have with regard to aging. The meetings, appropriately entitled “A Conversation on Aging Issues,“ will also offer an opportunity to discuss H-F 45, a legislative mandate to reduce the number of Area Agencies on Aging.

Everyone is welcomed to partake in the conversation at meetings scheduled to take place locally, in Atlantic, Creston and Carroll.

The meeting in: Atlantic, will be held on July 28th, from 12:30-to 2-pm, at Iowa Western Community College, and later that same day in Creston, from 5-to 6:30-p.m. The session in Carroll will be held August 4th, from 12:30-to 2-p.m., at the Carroll Chamber of Commerce.
