PORT CRANE SENIORS AND NORTH FENTON SENIORS
By Val LaClair
The Port Crane Seniors meet on the 4th Wednesday of each month in the Fenton Town Hall in Port Crane, except for June, July, and August, when the meetings will be held in Otseningo Park. The meetings start at 11:30 AM with a covered dish lunch about 12:00 noon followed by a program. Each month the members are asked to bring, (if they wish to, not required) food items for the food pantry at St. Joseph's Church in Sanitaria Springs. Toys for Tots are collected at Christmas time, and four times a year items are collected for "Our Troops".
Once a year there is an AARP Driver's Training 2-day class for a reduction on auto insurance. Call Marie Miller 221-3376 to register for this and for more information.
