Staunton-Augusta-Waynesboro Region News
The Chronic Disease Self-Management Steering Committee for the SAW Region met on Nov. 20 at Augusta Regional Free Clinic.
The Waynesboro City Council met on Nov. 13 and approved VPAS’ request to be exempted from Personal Property taxes.
Don Short is a member of the WSC Local Council and is also active in the Waynesboro Lions Club. He recognized that the Lions Club, which has an outreach focus of improving vision, could be interested in supporting the VPAS Diabetes Self Management (DSMP) program, as diabetes is a risk factor for vision issues.
Last week several VPAS employees and one intern attended the leadership training for SAIL which stands for Stay Active & Independent for Life. This exercise program is actually a fall prevention program, but it is not billed as such since seniors sometimes tend to avoid “fall prevention programs” (I’m not old, I don’t fall).
Members at Staunton Senior Center wrapped candies in gold and silver to be put in treat bags and sold at SSC’s upcoming Holiday Bazaar and Yard Sale.
Staunton Senior Center’s fall dance had many good things going for it, the committee decided. They included Center members at the event, transportation provided for members, a terrific poster, great decorations (nice and simple to assemble and take down), fabulous food, and the military display of local soldiers from WWII was well received.
