Perspective Article for February 2018
We only have 45 minutes to share TRIAD with you. Cheryl Presley has graciously agreed to make a special trip to our ASP Seminar on March 12, at 9:30am. I am asking you to make a bit more effort to come to hear what she has to say. TRIAD is making a difference in Bethany and the surrounding area. You will be more informed after this meeting!
Here are a few tidbits of what they do, other than “Frauds and Scams”, “Skimmers” “Mail Safety and “Identity Theft”.
TRIAD is a collaborative effort between the Sheriff’s office, local police departments and senior citizens working together to reduce and prevent crimes against seniors.
Each year, the TRIAD program hosts several activities and make available several programs for our older adults. A few of these activities are:
Refrigerator Card Program: Gives emergency responders immediate information to help serve you better in case of an emergency.
Educational Seminars: Programs available on fraud, scams, identity theft, personal safety, etc. Programs can also be developed according to your specific needs. All free-of-charge.
Young at Heart Senior Prom:
Grandparents Raising Grandchildren: Donations are accepted and used to assist grandparents on a fixed income to give their grandchildren a traditional Christmas experience, including a Christmas turkey for each family, along with gifts presented by Santa Claus at our annual reception.
