Wanted: Residents’ ideas for living it up as they age

Residents will explore what they will want and need to age gracefully while living in Buxton at a meeting scheduled for 1 p.m. March 5 in the Old White Church, 15 Salmon Falls Road, Bar Mills.

“A Livability Community provides services for people of all ages,” a posting on the town website states. “Buxton is a beautiful town, where many people hope to stay as they age. Help us explore opportunities through the Age-Friendly Community process.” To help brainstorm ideas, plan to attend. For more information, contact Ellen or Terri at [email protected]
