For seven years now I’ve been conducting a weekly meeting for a vibrant group of visually impaired Hudson County seniors. The group had been funded by the North Hudson Area Agency on Aging. Much to my dismay and to the great disappointment of our members, we just learned that our funding has been cut and that our funds were “shifted” to another area.
I am puzzled and find it hard to believe that there is another, more “deserving” program than ours.
We hope the agency involved will reconsider their decision and we also pray that another source of funding will materialize.
