Southwest Fort Worth AARP


April brings a panel discussion about our city. The council members for Districts 6, 7 and 9 will participate. Only District 7 has an opponent and he has been invited to take part. Our won Worth Wharton will moderate and each participant will have an equal amount of time to respond to the questions that have been submitted by our members. This is a rare opportunity to learn what our city leaders envision for now and in the future and how they want to address our continued growth.


For a change of pace, we have James Ward Lee, folklorist, humorist presenting an entertaining and interesting program. Mr. Lee has authored many books, articles and papers. He is a regular book reviewer for the Fort Worth Library, so you don't want to miss this fun packed morning!


The future holds a program from Dr. Janice Knebl, head of the Division of Geriatrics at TCOM UNT Health Science Center. Dr. Knebl is a national authority on how we age. Our Chapter keeps up with programs adopted by our city and so we will have Blue Zone Project Neighborhood Team Manager come explain how implementing this can lead to a longer, healthier life. We will have two pot luck luncheons which include a program, and a favorite of all Dr. Alan Saxe. Stay 'tuned' for more details and additional programs!

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.

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.
