Mutual Mount Airy


Attend our meeting, Jan. 14, 2012 at Lovett Library


RSVP to Peter Javsicas: 215 247-0457, jpj7130@gmail.com 


Agenda for Jan. 14: We will hear reports regarding different models of aging-in-place communities and what we might learn from them. There will be Q&A with reps of these villages.


Is this for you?


Are you an older adult in the Mount Airy area? Are you wondering about your lifestyle in the long run?


Maybe, like many other folks, you would like to enjoy living in your own home and continue to be a member of this vibrant, diverse community as long as age permits – in other words, aging in place.


(New-comers please arrive at 6:30 for brief orientation)
