Keeping Seniors Aware of Services is Key To Safety
Senior citizens are often the target of scammers. In some documented cases, caretakers have ripped off the elderly by stealing from bank accounts and taking checks. The Head of Consumer Affairs for Bucks County, Mike Bannon says both Bucks and Montgomery Counties have special units to deal with anyone who steals from seniors.
“Bucks and Montgomery Counties both have a Task Force to investigate anyone who physically, mentally or financially abuses a senior. They are good programs to go to if anyone should need help.”
May is Older Americans Month. Bannon was a guest on the
Lansdale Historical Soc. To Present History of Churches.
The Lansdale Historical Society will present the history of churches in Lansdale. The Historical Society’s Pat Rieker says the event is scheduled for Tuesday evening.
“When Lansdale was getting its start in 1872, it was very important that churches become established and families needed to move here and they were looking for a church home. The founding fathers, Dr. Jacobs and the Heebner brothers, who were the owned the Heebner Agricultural Works, were instrumental in establishing the Lansdale Methodist-Episcopal Church, which was the first church in Lansdale.”
The event is Tuesday night at the Lansdale Park & Rec. building at 7:30. Pat Rieker was a guest Monday morning on the AM-Edition with Darryl Berger.
