To help mature drivers find their safest fit, there’s CarFit. An educational program that gives adults the chance to check how well their personal vehicles “fit” them, by providing information and materials on community-specific resources than can enhance driving safety. Join us at the Town Hall Parking Lot on Friday, June 7, where trained professionals will work to “fit” you to your vehicle for maximum safety and comfort. The Manchester Police, Council on Aging and TRIAD Council are pleased to offer this senior citizens program. For more information, call 978-526-7500. Appointments are available between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., with light refreshments.
