NEWS CONCERNING YOUR SENIOR POST
Due to funding reductions the Senior Post will no longer be distributed by mail. However, we plan to keep the Senior Post circulating by distributing future copies of it at the Senior Center located at 21 Moss Street, the Blue Ridge Regional Library located at 310 E. Church St., Southern Area Agency on Aging located at 204 Cleveland Ave, and the Martinsville YMCA located at 3 Starling Ave.
If you are a shut-in and have been on the Senior Post mailing list and still want to receive a copy, please call us at the Senior Center and we will do our best to make sure you receive future copies.
The Senior Post will continue to be a quarterly publication. We regret that we are no longer able to distribute the Senior Post by mail, but our budget will no longer allow us to do so.
Please remember we have other news media who allow us to announce our special events free of charge. They are listed below:
