Montgomery County’s Commission on Aging Offering Informative Sessions on Resources for Seniors

The Montgomery County Commission on Aging's Ambassador Program is currently hosting several presentations in April and May to inform seniors about available services. These events will serve as information hubs and provide a platform for seniors to voice their needs and interests.
