Happy August. We hope you are enjoying the summer and staying cool. If you need a place to escape the heat, the Adams County Office for Aging Inc. (ACOFA) supports seven senior centers around the county — all air conditioned, with friendly staff and people who will be happy to welcome a newcomer needing to sit someplace comfortable. For a list of locations, days and hours of operation, please contact our office at 717-334-9296 or 1-800-548-3240.

August is prime produce time with all kinds of fresh fruits and vegetables to be found at local Farmer’s Markets. If you haven’t picked up a set of vouchers through the Farmers Market Nutrition Program and think you may be eligible, please come see us at 318 W. Middle Street in Gettysburg. People age 60 and older who live in Adams County and meet the income guidelines can receive four $5 vouchers and use them to buy PA grown produce. The eligibility limit is $23,107 for a single person and $31,284 for a married couple. Vouchers are available through Sept. 30; limit one set per person each year.

Linda Thompson is the community services director at the Adams County Office for Aging Inc.
