Spring workshops, events are plentiful

We had a great turnout at our Senior Center Grand Re-Opening on April 17. The ice cream buffet offered everything from a plain bowl of vanilla ice cream to sundaes and banana splits. There were lots of grandchildren in attendance, which made it even more special.

AAA news

Medicare counseling will now be offered, by appointment only, every Wednesday at the Senior Center (in the community center).

If you are already on Medicare and need to review your plan (each year), we can help. If you are turning 65 this year and need help or have questions, we can help. If you are receiving Social Security disability benefits, you are probably eligible for Medicare and we can help.

You may be eligible for extra help if your income falls below a certain amount. Again, we can help.

Call to make an appointment by contacting the Area Agency on Aging located in Pagosa Springs. Our experienced and talented Medicare counselors are here to help and the service is free. Call 264-0502.
