Holden Senior Center to begin program series

Date: February 6, 2018 | Category: News

The Holden Senior Center is ramping up its programming in 2018 with fun presentations and events for older adults to be presented regularly on the second Tuesday of each month.
The first presentation, “Are you Smarter than a Scam Artist?” will take place at 11 a.m. Feb. 13 at the center at 204 W. Second St.
The free, interactive presentation will let folks know about the latest scams while testing their fraud prevention skills.
Missouri SMP (Senior Medicare Patrol) Team Coordinator Brian Henning will present “Are You Smarter than a Scam Artist?” to kick off the program series.
“We are hoping that these presentations will bring more people into our senior center, where they will find out they can have a great lunch and get access to needed services,” said Center Coordinator Joyce Lagud. “The Holden Senior Center serves good food in a very pleasant, down-home atmosphere with very genuine, caring people. We pride ourselves in giving good service and making sure that we accommodate all people.”
The center encourages contributions; however, people 60 and older may enjoy lunch regardless of their ability to contribute. People younger than 60 may enjoy lunch for the actual cost of the meal.
The center is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays. Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The center also provides an array of services to people 60 and older. They range from benefits and Medicare counseling to care management and health and wellness activities.
Holden Senior Center is one of 23 locations operated by Care Connection for Aging Services, a non-profit area agency on aging that serves 13 West Central Missouri counties, including Johnson. Its mission is to provide resources and services that empower people to create healthy aging experiences. If you have questions, call 1-800-748-7826 or visit www.goaging.org.
