FREEPORT — Seniors, here is your opportunity to tell us what matters to you.

We at the Senior Resource Center truly want to know so we have set aside two hours to give you the chance to open up and tell us what keeps you awake at night. What is really on your mind?

You can share your thoughts at the Tell Us What Matters Forum on Monday, Feb 12, from 1 to 3 p.m. The event will be held at the Senior Activity Center, 216 E. Stephenson St., Freeport. Refreshments will be served.

The Senior Resource Center wants to ensure that we remain in touch with the people who we are serving so we decided the best way to do that was to ask them to share their concerns, thoughts and feelings,” said Susan Lambert, Senior Resource Center executive director. ““We ultimately hope to use the information we receive to improve our programs and activities and offer the support and resources our seniors tell us they need.”

Attendees may want to consider what matters to them before attending. Is it health care, safety, taxes or being able to stay in your own home? Or maybe it is finances, transportation, home care, family relationships or loneliness. Your thoughts will help us design expanded programming to address your concerns.

Each attendee will have a limited amount of time to speak at the forum so that many people can be heard.

Reservations are required due to seating limitations. Call the Senior Resource Center at 815-235-9777 by Thursday, Feb. 8, to save your spot. If you need a ride to the forum on the SRC bus, reserve your spot by Wednesday, Feb. 7, by calling 815-235-9777.
