PREBLE COUNTY — The Preble County Council on Aging has several great opportunities for seniors.

Preble County Council on Aging Chosen as Vaccination Site

The PCCOA was chosen as a vaccination site by the Preble County Health Department for two of their vaccination clinics at the end of December and the beginning of January. We appreciated the opportunity to help!

Drive-Thru Thursdays

Reminder! Drive-Thru Thursdays will continue into this New Year. Stop by from 2-3 p.m. each Thursday for a special treat. Our sponsors provided pretzels, ice cream, cookies, brownies, grab bags and much more last year. The weekly treats are always a surprise. We don’t even know what the treat will be! When we run out though, we run out.

We’d like to thank the following sponsors from 2020 and we look forward to working with you again in 2021: Kimball Plumbing, United Healthcare, Vancrest of Eaton, Arbor Trace Richmond IN, Brookhaven, Crossroads Hospice, Knolls of Oxford, The Greenbriar, SKLD of New Lebanon and Dayton City Hospice.

Interested in sponsoring our Drive Thru Thursdays? Please contact Stacey Fullmer for all the details at (937) 456-4947 or
