Friday: For Our Seniors: Please Help!!!

6 Dec

If wrinkles must be written upon our brows, let them not be written upon the heart. The spirit should not grow old.

– James A. Garfield-
This afternoon we celebrated Miss Eleanor Correnty’s 90th birthday at Towne Creek Apartments in McKinney. There was laughter, great food, and plenty of cake. But, this celebration was just a brief distraction and pleasant pause in the every day life that our seniors face. Many are alone, with no family or friends nearby.

These lovely, normally calm and content seniors, are all up in arms about their McKinney TAPS public transportation route being eliminated. The number 100 and 300 route that services Towne Creek Senior Apartments and the adjacent apartment complex was recently cancelled without notice. Many of these residents have no other means of transportation, no friends or family to take them to the doctor, the store, or to the senior center. They are all on very limited incomes.

You can help them by voicing your opinion to TAPS, your friends, and your neighbors. Share this post. Talk to your local council members. Speak up for our elderly neighbors who feel that they no longer have a voice and no one cares. It doesn’t matter if you live in McKinney or outer Mongolia. Our seniors deserve our respect and appreciation. Thank you!

Miss Eleanor Correnty celebrates her 90th birthday with friends at Towne Creek Senior Aparments.

Now, a few residents plead for the reinstatement of their public transportation route from TAPS.

    We should all treat others with respect. I hope you can save your public transportation.
