Itís that time again. Yes, itís tax season. The AARP tax specialists will be here again this year every Friday in February. Please call Sandy at the center to schedule your free tax preparation.

We will be having the AARP Driver Safety Program again on March 21 at 1 p.m. It is an informative, yet informal, method for drivers over 50 to keep up with new highway safety information and addresses factors related to aging, as well as acting as a refresher course for proper driving rules and techniques. Any licensed driver is eligible to attend the class. AARP charges $12 for AARP members and $14 for non-members. Please call or come by the center to sign up.

Beginning in February, we will be having a weekly Bible study led by Vernon Camp. The Bible study will meet every Monday at 11 a.m.

We are planning our trip to the Granbury Operaís performance of Greater Tuna on Friday, March 11. The show starts at 2:30 p.m., so we will need to leave about 1:30 p.m. The price will be $15 per ticket and we need 20 people going to get that price.
