To the editor:
I read the editorial about the senior citizen survey in the Feb. 22 edition of The C-T and I’m happy to have seen it. I’ve served on the Person County Senior Citizen Advisory County for some seven or eight years and we need your input to make sure we’re meeting the current and future needs of our seniors.
While the center, a crown jewel of Person County, is meeting (and exceeding) its current obligations, we know there are other situations that are not being met. We also know there are areas we could improve, so hearing from you is vitally important.
The survey the editorial cited is concise and to the point, but the answers it seeks will go a long way to improving the center’s efficiency and effectiveness.
It takes only a few minutes to complete, so I encourage everyone, whether you’re a senior citizen or not, to get to a computer and take the survey. You can even go to the senior center and the dedicated staff there can help you fill out the survey.
We need to be ready to meet the needs of our seniors now and in the future. After all, we aren’t getting any younger. Take the survey. Your future self will thank you.
