Want to learn more, from the comfort of your own home, about a wide and growing variety of services and activities available to all Kearsarge-area senior citizens? Then join in a "virtual" presentation by, and conversation with, the two senior staffers at the Kearsarge Council on Aging (KCOA), beginning at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 23.
Because of the continuing coronavirus pandemic, the event will be delivered "live" over the internet to local residents via an easy-to-use videoconferencing technology called Zoom. There it can be viewed interactively and at no cost via home computers and hand-held devices. Information and a link to join the session can be gained by sending an e-mail request to the event sponsor, The Andover Community Hub, at TheAndoverHub@gmail.com.
What is KCOA all about? Kelley Keith, its executive director and presenter at the Feb. 23 event, explains:
"We are grateful and honored to serve our senior population in nine local communities and welcome your ideas about programming, activities, and services.
"We are a community of like-minded neighbors who help each other live healthy and happy lives in our beautiful area. Our Chapin Senior Center at 37 Pleasant Street in New London is our hub for social interaction, volunteerism, lifelong learning and exploring, healthy aging, and a source for referrals to other organizations and agencies that best meet your needs.
"These programs and activities include our transportation and mobility equipment services, and our many social and recreational events throughout the year, both solo and in partnership with other community organizations like the Lake Sunapee VNA, local town recreation departments and libraries, and our other partners and collaborators."
Keith will be joined in the Zoom presentation and discussion by Karen Lester, KCOA administrative manager.
The event will be the second in what is planned to be a year-long series of public Hub-sponsored offerings aimed at increasing awareness of the wide variety of services offered by area organizations and agencies and available to local residents.

KCOA came into existence in 1992, while The Hub was formed when two other local organizations joined forces in January 2019.
