It’s time once again to start thinking about attending the Governor’s Conference on Aging. Rock your age. It will be held at the Radisson Colonial Hotel in Helena Sept. 25-27. If you are interested in attending, you can pick up a registration form at Senior Center. There is also information on our keynote speakers, conference themes and Governor’s Centenarian Banquet.

What should you do if someone calls and asks for your information, for money, or threatens to cancel your health benefits if you don’t share your personal information? Hang up! It’s a scam. Scam artists may try to steal your personal information by calling you and asking for your current Medicare Number to get your new Medicare card.

If you have ever wondered how much time and planning goes into the meals at the Senior Center, it’s a great deal. The Older Americans Act requires that all nutrition projects meet the Dietary Guidelines for Americans published by the secretaries of Health and Human Services and Agriculture. They require that they then contract with a scientific body, such as the National Academy of Sciences, to publish reports on nutrient requirements, and to develop dietary guidelines. This act requires that all federal food, nutrition and health programs promote these dietary guidelines. The most recent versions of these guidelines serve as the cornerstone for our federal nutrition policy.

Enjoy our summer weather while we have it. Hope to see you at the center this week.
