Tuesday, the Ellis County Extension Office will kick off the first of three programs in it’s Community Education Series. “Knowledge for Life’s Concerns” is the theme for this year’s series. The three programs will focus on bringing the latest resources to community members on several topics.

Life changes – and so do the answers to life’s questions. Learn about the latest resources to help you make informed decisions on aging issues, real estate questions and protecting yourself from fraud and cyber-security concerns.
The noon-hour sessions are FREE and open to the public. Please register with the Ellis County Extension Office, 785-628-9430, in order to ensure adequate materials and supplies. Bring a lunch to enjoy during the meeting if desired. Educational materials, refreshments and door prizes are included.
The first session focuses on “Aging Concerns” and is set for Tuesday, September 24 from 12 – 1 p.m. at the Extension Meeting Room at 601 Main Street. Enter the rear door from the north parking lot. Presenters from the Northwest KS Area Agency on Aging, Hays Med Lifeline Program and FHSU Department of Sociology will be on hand to share resources on aging and managing on your own.
