Free seminar to help District 5 seniors save money and protect their assets
Atlanta City Councilmember Natalyn Archibong will host her 16th annual F.U.S.S. (Focus Upon Senior Services) seminar from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 18, 2017 at Drew Charter School, located at 301 East Lake Boulevard S.E.
The annual seminar informs District 5 seniors about government services and money-saving discounts. The free seminar is for senior citizens in East Atlanta, Kirkwood, East Lake, Lake Claire, Edgewood, Reynoldstown, Cabbagetown, North Ormewood Park, and all other seniors living in Council District 5.
Various city departments, county officials, and senior-based agencies will answer questions, give advice, and make suggestions.
“Senior residents are encouraged to attend and learn about homestead exemptions, housing rehabilitation programs, senior discounts, and other resources,” Archibong said. “We want to do everything we can to help make sure that our seniors are aware of the benefits afforded to them as they try to manage on a fixed income. Over the years, this event has proven to be a popular seminar for many of our elderly residents and their caregivers. I am extremely excited to present F.U.S.S. for the 16th consecutive year!”
