Additional Senior Programming

There are more Medicare insurance options available than ever before. Finding the right plan requires careful consideration, and we know, an educated consumer will make the right choice. We are here to educate you on your Medicare insurance options. Licensed Sales Representative Carol Cherry discusses multiple plans of varying coverage and cost that can benefit your individual needs.

“Medicare Made Clear” is held on the fourth Saturday of each month at 11:00 a.m. and on the following Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the lower level Zimmerman Meeting Room. These seminars are free and open to all; no registration is required.

For additional information about these programs, please contact Samantha at or at (815) 756-9568 ext. 1701.

We also offer many programs of interest to seniors, such as lectures, activities, and book clubs.
