Support for seniors

Dear Editor:

Senior Matters is a nonprofit organization committed to providing diverse educational and social programs for seniors. Our facility is located in the Third Street Center in Carbondale (the old elementary school).

We are seeking new board members as well as additional program participants. Our board meets the morning of the third Wednesday of every month with an occasional additional working meeting, and our programs are diverse and numerous throughout the month. We are sustained by fundraising events, grants and donations from businesses and private parties.

If you feel you have the interest, and/or any special knowledge or skill that would enhance our organization, then we would welcome hearing from you. Please contact Diane at 963-2536 for additional information. You can also visit our website,

As our nation’s population is aging at an accelerated rate, we have increased need for opportunities and programs that reach out to our seniors. Please consider how you might enhance not only your life but the lives of seniors, as Seniors Matter.
