We opened our March program with a presentation by Andrea from “Service-Link” which is located in the Nashua Senior Center. This organization’s mission is to assist seniors and provide referrals to seniors on areas such as transportation, housing, food assistance, drug prescriptions and many other areas. Of specific interest is the assistance that Service-Link can provide on Medicare parts A & B & D. Service-Link can be contacted at 603-598-4709.
At our next meeting, we were serenaded by our very own “John O” with an Irish Melody concert and sing-along in celebration of St. Pat’s Day. All your favorite Irish melodies were sung. All had a “song” time. See the photo attached.
The following week, we had a presentation by Rick Pearson from “Relay 711.” This is a national level organization that assists those that are hard of hearing. The organization provides various types of communication assistance to those who quality by providing relay operators, special phones, TTY support, speech-to-speech and CAPTEL services.
