BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. – An extensive discussion on transportation concerns related to local seniors will be held Monday, Aug. 13 at 3 p.m. at the Rockingham Library. The main goals of this program are to identify existing transportation services, challenges, and opportunities.
Rebecca Gagnon, general manager of The Current, will provide information about their transportation services by bus and car. Local senior Mary Brandt will describe her recent experiences trying to get around town when she was unable to drive due to an eye injury. Dr. Walter Griffiths, a local geriatrician, will discuss the impact on seniors’ lives who have no reliable transportation. State representative Carolyn Partridge, state senator Becca Balint, municipal manager Wendi Harrison, Joanne Erenhouse from Senior Solutions, and the new director of Parks Place Wendi Germain have all been invited to attend.
Take this opportunity to weigh in on transportation services for our seniors. Feel free to make comments and ask questions. Be sure to bring along a senior neighbor, friend, or family member who would not otherwise be able to attend. This program is free and open to the public.
