The SCOA was honored to be part of the Sabine Relay for Life 2018. We raised a total of $1,210.50. We would also like to thank Dorthy Alford for donating her beautiful Dresden Plates quilt that we raffled off.
The Sabine Council on Aging’s Annual Summer Fan Drive has provided outreach and relief to the senior citizens of Sabine Parish.
The idea is simple: an inexpensive fan to provide some relief from the searing Louisiana Heat.
The SCOA Annual Summer Fan Drives will kick off on May 15, 2018. On May 29, 2018 we will have a live remote on KTEZ & KWLZ from 10:30 am–12:30 pm.
Donations can be dropped off at our Legacy Building (Many):
200 Legacy Drive, Many, LA 71449.

Every May, the Administration on Aging, part of the Administration for Community Living, leads our nation’s observance of Older American’s Month. The 2018 theme, Engage at Every Age, emphasizes that you are never too old (or young) to take part in activities that can enrich your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. It also celebrates the many ways in which older adults make a difference in our communities.
Participating in activities that promote mental and physical wellness, offering your wisdom and experience to the next generation, seeking the mentor-ship of someone with more life experience than you—those are just a few examples of what being engaged can mean. No matter where you are in your life, there is no better time than now to start. We hope you will join in and Engage at Every Age!
