The Senior Center is trying to get an AARP Driver Safety Class scheduled at the Parsons Center. The do not have any instructors in our area. If you are interested in being an instructor, you will need to complete an online training session for teaching the class and an in-person training, which may be given online if needed, to complete to process. Anyone interested should contact Terry Stone, firstname.lastname@example.org for information. Instructors receive a stipend for teaching the classes. If the instructor goes outside their service area and the cost of expenses is higher than the stipend, the instructor will be reimbursed for mileage and a meal.
We are trying to entice more seniors to either visit the Mt. Top or Parsons Center. We are seeking suggestions of activities that you would attend at either Center. Some possibilities could include: dance class, chair exercises, tai chi class, more crafts (be specific), more speakers, please call Linda J Bonner at 304-478-2423 or write Tucker County Senior Citizens, 217 Senior Lane, Parsons, WV 26287.
