Susan Morris recently had the pleasure of meeting Jackie Burgess, the new director for Sanders County Council on Aging! Jackie and Susan teamed up with Mariah Myton from Western Montana Mental Health, Duane Lutke from Area VI Agency on Aging and Sheryl Weatherell of the foster grandparent program to host an Aging & Disability Resource event at the Hot Springs Senior Center on Wednesday, March 21 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Fifteen people learned about the resources and services our agencies provide in Sanders County. We are planning future events in Plains, Thompson Falls and Noxon.
There has been some interest in having a Self-Esteem class in Hot Springs. Summit is also looking for people from Sanders and Mineral to share community issues, be peer advocates or take part in disability skills, awareness or history classes.
If you are interested in classes, becoming a peer advocate with Summit or if you are aware of an issue that affects the disability community, please contact Susan Morris at the Missoula office 406-728-1630 or 800-398-9002.
