Council on Aging Board accepting applications

Special to The Times

The City of Stockbridge is accepting applications for their Council on Aging Representative.

The Henry County Council on Aging (COA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization made up of nineteen volunteers who serve as directors. Directors are selected by each County Commissioner and City Council members of the four cities. The COA's primary objective is to support programs that serve Henry County senior citizens. Supported programs include Meal-on-Wheels, Nutrition Supplements, In-Home Services, Senior Centers, and Volunteer Activities. The council members serve as advocates on behalf of the senior citizens of Henry County. The COA’s primary fundraising event is the Miles-for-Meals Campaign which is held annually on the first Saturday in May. To be eligible to serve as a representative for the City of Stockbridge, an applicant must reside within the city limits of Stockbridge.
