Educational series begins Tuesday
Next week, the Ellis County Extension will kick off the first of three programs in its Community Education Series -- "Knowledge for Life's Concerns."
Three programs will focus on bringing the latest resources to community members on several topics.
Life changes -- and so do the answers to life's questions. Learn about the latest resources to help you make informed decisions on aging issues, real estate questions and protecting yourself from fraud and cyber-security concerns.
The noon-hour sessions are free and open to the public. Please register with the Ellis County Extension office, (785) 628-9430, in order to ensure adequate materials and supplies. Bring a lunch to enjoy during the meeting, if desired. Educational materials, refreshments and door prizes are included.
The first session focuses on "Aging Concerns" and will be noon to 1 p.m. Tuesday at the Extension meeting room, 601 Main. Enter the rear door from the north parking lot. Presenters from the Northwest Kansas Area Agency on Aging, Hays Medical Center Lifeline Program and Fort Hays State University Department of Sociology will be on hand to share resources on aging and managing on your own.
Mark your calendars now for the remaining programs of this series:
* Noon Oct. 15, "Real Estate Concerns." A panel discussion on home financing, reverse mortgages, downsizing and first-time home buyers presented by Heartland Realty, Sunflower Bank and RE/Max Realty.
* Noon Nov. 19, "Fraud Protection/Cyber-Security." The session will be presented by Hays Police Department and Document Resources and focus on electronic privacy, identity theft protection and securing personal documents.
