Program/Speaker: Rotarian Jo Cooper spoke to the club about Friends in Action, an organization that offers free services to elderly and disabled residents of Hancock County so that they can live independently, with dignity and a strong quality of life.
Since last year, the organization has expanded its programming and its reach since they have moved into their quarters at the Bryant E. Moore Community Center. Some of the many services that are provided to their clients are: coffee socials, yoga, garden groups, art classes, and Senior Expo.
They now facilitate senior ride services in the Deer Isle-Stonington area and an Aging in Place program in Blue Hill. This year Friends in Action have 130 volunteer drivers and 147 clients. Jo encourages those with an interest in volunteering to contact their office at 207-664-6016 or visit their website
