Letter to the Editor

Your vote is important in senior center issue

Friday, August 1, 2008

Dear Editor,

On Aug. 5, 2008, Vernon County voters will have an opportunity to support a generation of our senior citizens who have become known as the "Greatest Generation." Our seniors have earned that title by surviving a worldwide depression, winning a world war, building more roads, highways, bridges, dams, hospitals, schools, and conquering more diseases than any generation before or after them. Our seniors have blazed a trail of progress allowing all Americans and many foreign nations to benefit from their achievements.

Now our seniors need support with medical transportation, meals, in-home services, minor home repairs, and health and wellness care. Seniors deserve our support.

I urge all Vernon County voters to give serious consideration to supporting our seniors and approve the Senior Services Fund on Aug. 5.


Barney Fisher,
