STANDARD — The Putnam County Community Center in Standard will host an AARP Smart Driver safety program from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday, April 15, and Tuesday, April 16. The program is a classroom-based refresher course designed especially for drivers aged 50 and older.
This program aims to help community members retain their driving competency. Learn strategies, understand the effects of aging on driving, reduce the chance of having an accident and know when to retire from driving. Upon completion of this course, participants will receive a certificate that can be presented to their automobile insurance holder that may entitle them to a discount. There is a $15 fee for AARP members (with AARP membership card) and a $20 fee for non-members on the first day of class. Fees are payable to AARP for the instruction book and materials, and you must attend both days.
To register, call 815-339-2711. Lunch will be available both days following class. Meals are provided at no cost to those 60 and older; however, there is a suggested donation of $5.
