Seniors get fleeced

VERGENNESA group of 14 elders made fleece blankets at a Vergennes Eagles Senior Community Meal event recently. The program was organized by Neighbor to Neighbor AmeriCorps at the Champlain Valley Agency on Aging. Several seniors took a blanket home to stay warm this winter and the other blankets will be donated to the John Graham Emergency Shelter in Vergennes. This blanket program was one of several healthy aging programs that were organized by AmeriCorps members this year. The programs promote healthy aging by providing seniors with educational presentations, opportunities for socialization, and meaningful activities.
