Monday night, the Jefferson County Geriatric Interest Network conducted a Community Education Night at The Foundry in Reynoldsville for the elderly members of the community.
The purpose of the event was to provide education about elder abuse and ways to prevent it.
The main speaker at the event was Jodi Reitz, protective services supervisor, Jefferson County Area Agency on Aging. Reitz informed those in attendance about the different forms of elder abuse and what her organization does to help those being abused.
The Mahoning Hills Players recently had a great time getting together once again for a skit.
Skits first started at the center under the direction of
friend and center participant Betty Spencer.
Spencer has moved away from this area, but the skits have become an ongoing tradition every chance there is to perform.
The actors had a great time, as did the audience that attended.
