HIT: To an effort to help educate senior citizens and their families.
Cayuga County Office for the Aging is holding a Senior Moments Resource Fair from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13, at Fingerlakes Mall in Aurelius. The idea behind the event is to get a lot of information under one roof to help people plan for the future. There will be about 60 booths at the mall with information about social activities, travel, Medicare and guidelines for qualifying for assistance programs. Connecting local seniors with valuable information is important, so we hope people take advantage of this opportunity.
