The extreme heat wave of the past few weeks has forced ElderWatch to change the location of Wednesday’s ice-cream social.
The gathering, an observation of World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, will be in Kingston Community Center from 1 to 3 p.m.
The program will include entertainment by Tommy Harding, ice cream and vendor booths with information of interest to seniors and their caregivers. Details will be provided about fraud, abuse and neglect.
