A special thank you to our First Responders, medical staff, and everyone else who is working to keep our community safe.
Hope you stayed warm, cozy and safe during the snowfall yesterday afternoon and last night! Today we look into a company that specializes in seniors, MontCo SAAC, located in both Norristown and Ambler! They provide opportunities for many people and we'll look into a few of their upcoming virtual plans below. The Centurion discussion is at 10:30AM, so don't miss it! If you'd like to join or find more information and events, you can visit their website or their Instagram.
Every year we make it is a special achievement, but it's a tad more special when you reach 100 years old. That's what local Josephine Talley accomplished a few days ago! Join MontCo SAAC on Zoom as they discuss a variety of topics with Josephine, such as what it takes to reach 100 years old and what it feels like to have made it this far in life!
