To the editor,

Hi, my name is Merrilee, and I turned 65 this year – and now I am learning about Medicare. The Seven County Senior Federation is helping me, and I endorse them without hesitation.

The Seven County Senior Federation was born in 1974 as a “child of necessity” out of the need for seniors to unite for their common good. SCSF is open to everyone age 18 or older, though it is geared to those older than 50. 

As of June 2019, there are 1,772 members in the seven-county area that includes Aitkin, Carlton, Chisago, Isanti, Kanabec, Mille Lacs and Pine. The SCSF runs on donations and volunteers and is self-supported by income generated at their One More Time stores. 

The SCSF has helped members with issues of taxes, Medicare, Social Security, transportation and more. I believe Seven County Senior Federation provides much needed services to seniors. 

For those who would like to learn more, they are having an informational meeting on Aug. 8, 2019, at the North Branch Library from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Call the Seven County Senior Federation at 320-679-4700 for more information.
