Every Tuesday AARP will be doing Taxes through April 9th.. Starting at 9AM the last client will be at 12:00. This is first come, first served. The Center doesn’t open until 8:30 Please remember to bring your copy of the 2011 tax returns, your W-2 Form if you were employed; also any Federal and State Tax forms you may receive in the mail. Although AARP’s focus is on seniors, they also do low income families. Classes are being taught the same time AARP is doing the taxes. Some classes need more quiet than others, so we just ask that you be respectful of classes going on at the same time. Also Si no habla Ingle’s traiga un intepetre, Gracias. Thank you.

March 4th & 7th. AARP Driver Safety Class is designed to help seniors tune up their driving skills and update their knowledge of the rules of the road, This is a 8-hour class broken into two 4 hour classes. The Class fee is $12 for AARP members and $14 for non-members. A completed registration form is required for participation. Checks should be made payable to AARP. As we get older it is important to take these classes and refresh our driving skills and learn how to drive more safely, especially now days, when were dealing with sometimes 5 lanes of traffic. The class is from 9AM – 1:00 each day. To sign up call 524-4533

Thursday, March 8th from 10AM - 11:00 Our Caregiver Support Group will be having a special class to discuss “The 10 warning signs of Alzheimer’s & Dementia”.
