Seniors to celebrate at VFW
The 2nd annual Senior Citizen Christmas Celebration will be held Tuesday, Dec. 17 at the DeQuincy V.F.W post home from 9 a.m.-12 noon. Doors will open at 8 a.m. with a continental breakfast. The event will include live music, dancing, a health fair and Bingo. A Christmas lunch will also be served.
Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs will be distributed to each senior citizen household represented again this year.
The Louisiana Commission for the Deaf will be providing amplified phones and silent call communicators for the hard of hearing and deaf individuals or for those who just can’t hear as well as they used to on the telephone.
Bring your Louisiana picture ID and Social Security card (Medicare cards are not accepted.)
You must have a home phone line to be eligible for the amplified telephones and only one per household.
If you are under the age of 60, proof of your hearing loss from a doctor must be provided (audiogram or prescription stating you have hearing loss)
If you have received equipment from the Louisiana Commission for the Deaf before, please bring your broken equipment with you to receive a replacement. If you have any questions, please contact Southwest Louisiana Independence Center (SLIC) at 477-7194 and ask to speak to Gwynn Houston.
