Where Volunteers Make a Difference

Tornado safety and how to get the most value at the grocery store are the topics of March presentations for seniors sponsored by local Triads. 

On March 24 at 10 AM, the Cottage Grove Triad will sponsor a free presentation on Grocery Shopping: How to Get the Most Value for What You Buy.  David Schommer, owner of the Piggly Wiggly, will discuss purchase by/sell by/use by dates, how to read labels, best day of the week to shop, and food storage.  This is a repeat of his 2009 program that was extremely well received.   The program will be held at Taylor Ridge Apartments, 510 Westlawn Drive, Cottage Grove.

On March 25 at 10:30 AM, Lori Wirth of the Madison Fire Department will discuss tornado safety. This free program, sponsored by the Southwest Madison Triad, will be held at Prairie Park Apartments, 6530 Schroeder Road in Madison.  

Triad is a national program that promotes health and safety for seniors.  Locally, RSVP partners with the Dane County Sheriff’s Department, local police departments, senior agencies and others to bring vital health and safety information to Dane County seniors.
