Pre-Retirement Meeting Jan.12
I invite everyone who is thinking about retiring or becoming Medicare eligible to join me for a pre-retirement meeting this Thursday, Jan. 12, from 6 to 8 p.m. in multipurpose room B at the Doolittle Community Center, 1950 N. J St. Experts on Social Security, Medicare and Medicare gap/supplement programs will be on hand to answer these and other questions about retiring:

  • What are your retirement options?
  • When are you eligible for Medicare?
  • What benefits are available under Medicare?
  • How do you plan for gaps with Medicare?

This event is only for educational purposes and no plan-specific benefits or details will be shared. For more information, please call 229-6681.

All middle school and high school students are invited to participate in a free homework assistance program taking place the first and third Saturday of each month at Dula Gym, 441 E.
