WHAT’S HAPPENING?


Hello Finney County and area seniors. We are now highly recommending that you wear a mask while at the Senior Center. Our November/December newsletter has been mailed and is available at the Senior Center now. The November meal menu is also available now.


Medicare Open Enrollment began on Oct. 15 and runs through the first week in December. This is the time you can evaluate and make changes to medication coverage and supplemental coverage. RSVP will once again have volunteers to help you evaluate your current Medicare coverages. Call Annette at 275-5566 to make an appointment.
