The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders invites all senior adults residing in Union County to express their ideas for the county’s 2017 Area Plan at a public meeting on Wednesday, September 28 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Union Township Senior Center, at 968 Bonnel Court in Union Township.

The Area Plan is part of a statewide planning process for senior services. The process includes meetings in local communities to ensure that seniors have the opportunity to voice their needs, concerns, and ideas.

“This meeting is an opportunity to hear directly from Union County’s senior adults and caregivers to find out what they would identify as their priority needs,” said Freeholder Bette Jane Kowalski, who is the Freeholder Board liaison to the Union County Department of Human Services. “The input we receive from our senior residents will be included in the plan that will be sent to the New Jersey Department of Human Services.”
