Lunch is served at noon with the ceremony following at 1 p.m. Family and friends are welcome. Lunch for people age 60 and over is by donation, $7.50 for persons under age 60 (by donation if accompanying a spouse age 60 or over.) Reservations are recommended. Please call 715-346-1401 to reserve your spot.
Free Smoke Alarms Available
Did you know children and seniors are at twice the risk of dying or being injured in a house fire? However, with a properly operating smoke alarm, the chances of surviving a fire improve by nearly 50%.
Thanks to the efforts of the Stevens Point Fire Department, the Aging & Disability Resource Center (ADRC) has a limited supply of smoke alarms available to be installed in the homes of seniors or adults with disabilities who don't have them.
If your home is lacking a smoke alarm(s) or if the alarm(s) isn't working properly, please give Portage County RSVP a call at 715-346-1401 and let us know how we can assist you. Volunteers are available to help install an alarm or check existing alarms to ensure they're working properly and you are protected. The Fire Department provided the ADRC with extra 9-volt batteries, so we can also assist with battery changes if needed.
