Senior Task Force
Councilman Scott Benson created the Senior Task Force in Spring of 2014 with just three supporters. In a year and a half, the group had tripled in size. During its first year, the group supported many events sponsored by the District 3 City Council office and organized several of its own. These events allowed community residents to socialize with each other as well as receive valuable community information. All events have been free of charge thanks to our generous donors. Most events are for seniors only but some have been open to the entire family.
