Joining Secretary Crouch will be Jack Tanner, director of the Raleigh County Commission on Aging, and clients served by the AD Waiver Program.

All of these services allow the person to remain as independent as possible in the community near family members and friends.

The meeting will take place at : Raleigh County Commission on Aging — 1614 South Kanawha Street Beckley, WV 25801 on Wednesday, March 8th, at 10am.
