  • Aug. 17, 1 p.m.: Franklin County Area Agency on Aging office, 600 Norland Ave., Suite 11, Chambersburg; and
  • Aug. 24, 1 p.m.: Franklin County Area Agency on Aging office


Stakeholders, older adults and people living with disabilities as well as their families, caregivers and community leaders are invited to hear an overview of the plan, its core principles and why such a plan is needed in Pennsylvania. There will be opportunities for those in attendance to provide comments and input on the plan.
