Area senior citizens gathered for the annual CSRA Regional Commission Area Agency on Aging’s annual public hearing Wednesday.
“We are always delighted to come to McDuffie County because we always have a great turnout,” said Jeannette Cummings, the Area Agency on Aging director.
Cummings’ agency provides services to a 14-county area which includes McDuffie County.
“We are funded by the state of Georgia to provide these services and every year we are required by law to make sure that we get input not only from professionals but also from the grass roots, that means people who actually use our services,” she said.
