Southwest Fort Worth AARP

August 16, 2017

Do you know what F.A.S.T stands for? This is extremely important and you should plan to attend our August 16, 2017 meeting to learn all about detecting signs and symptoms of stroke. Former Fort Worth City Manager Doug Harman will discuss this important topic sharing his experiences and the steps to recovery. Immediate recognition of a stroke makes a major difference in recovery. As we age stroke becomes more and more of a possibility. Be informed and aware of how to help yourself and others by prompt reaction of a sign of stroke. 


Our program for September is guaranteed to bring many visitors as UTA lecturer and professor of political science will present a program on timely subjects. Dr. Allan Saxe is always fun and 'tongue-in-check' in his presentations. A testimony of his popularity is that many of his former students join us for this entertaining program.  You don't want to miss this so mark your calendar for September 20 to be at Genesis United Methodist Church at 10:30 a.m.


Our Chapter will be celebrating its 30th Anniversary in October - this will be a big event with past presidents, many VIPs with decorations, the big, big cake, and a keepsake booklet. We will be collecting toiletries for 'Silver Stars' a program of Mayor Price's which supplies needed items for seniors who are living below poverty level. The cost for a really nice meal is $10 and any donations for the Silver Stars would be greatly appreciated. Purchase of tickets is available from August 1 until September 20, 2017. If you wish to purchase a ticket, please use our Contact Us page and someone will respond quickly. All are welcome. Remember to receive information making you an informed voter, to learn about the advantages of our golden years, and many other interesting topics be sure to attend our chapter meetings. In November during open enrollment our program will inform us about the changes to Medicare in 2018 - a vital interest of us all. Please join us at our meetings on the third Wednesday of each month (except December is held on the 2nd Wednesday). We meet at Genesis United Methodist Church, 7635 South Hulen Street in Fort Worth with coffee at 10 a.m. and the meeting from 10:30 to 11:30.
