Polson seniors for Sept. 27, 2023
POLSON — Take a deep breath. We have survived tourists, forest fires and road construction. And now a glorious Autumn is here. Gathering, hunting, and raking are next.
Property owners in Lake County have until Oct. 1 to file for a $675 refund on your property taxes. Take your tax statement, if you have it, ID and SS card to 3 Ninth Ave. W #3 in Polson (the building you get your driver’s license from). It only takes a few minutes.
A safer driving course, sponsored by AARP-Safe Driver is offered on Oct. 5 from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m. The class costs $20 for AARP members and $25 for non-members. Substantial discounts on car insurance may be available upon completion of the course. The class is presented vis video with instructor’s assistance and there is no testing.
Flu and/or Pneumonia shots are available at the Polson Senior Center on Sept. 28 from 10 a.m.-noon. Bring your Medicare card for cost-free vaccinations.
If you have fresh garden produce you can donate to the center, bring them in. We are also getting a good response from those who are repurposing those green grocery bags for use in commodity distributions.
