“While I will continue to provide Senior ID cards and related information free of charge at my office, I wanted to give our local seniors even more opportunities to receive access to all of the discounts and programs provided by the County’s Office for the Aging,” said Legislator D’Amaro. “Accordingly, I am pleased to be able to bring these services directly into our communities and I look forward to meeting many seniors during our September Outreach Events. I thank the participating venues for serving as host sites for these programs and encourage interested residents to drop by and visit.”
