I am always impressed by Action for Older Persons!! They take every opportunity to help educate the older members of our community by offering informational sessions regarding changes in health care and computer courses. They share information regarding how and where their clients can get involved in their community, such as the book reading program at Binghamton University. They are always thinking of new ways to improve the lives of some of the most important people in our community!! We are a better community because of the work they do!!
