At its final meeting of 2017, the Area Agency on Aging District 7 (AAA7) took the opportunity to recognize board of trustees officers for 2018.
“We appreciate the time and talent our board of trustees provides to our agency year round,” said Pamela K. Matura, AAA7 executive director. “Having representation, guidance and feedback from our 10-county district is vital to the operations of our agency. We are grateful for the dynamic and dedicated group we have through our board of trustees.”
