Kendall County group provides seniors help on scam awareness

Over 70 seniors played bingo at the Oswegoland Senior and Community Center before their first luncheon at the new facility at 3525 Rt. 34 on Oct. 18 2022.

Kendall County TRIAD is letting all senior citizens in the area to know about the upcoming events planned in our area.

“As we have in the past, TRIAD is planning both educational and fun events for 2024,” Paul Kubinski, deputy with the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office and chairman of Kendall County TRIAD, said in a news release announcing the programs.

Many seniors have benefitted from TRIAD sponsored events and efforts to educate the growing senior population. In an effort to get some of our educational efforts out to more remote areas of the county, the organization has developed a “Scam Awareness Road Show”, allowing the TRIAD to hopefully increase the scope and awareness of protecting yourself from scams, according to the release.

“It was a great presentation and we were so glad to have TRIAD come to the Lisbon area,” Deb Anderson, village of Lisbon representative, said in the release. “The information was timely and very helpful to our residents.”
