Peninsula: Agency on Aging turns 25

The agency formed to help “aging” people, marks its 25th year this week.

The Olympic Area Agency on Aging, based in Port Hadlock and serving hundreds of elderly people each day in Jefferson and Clallam counties, will mark the occasion with a quiet, invitation-only get-together Tuesday.

The rest of the week will be spent the way they usually are, methodically helping hundreds of people eat, get medical counseling and other services.

Since 1976, the agency has adjusted to the needs of the region’s growing population and is now preparing for the future, according to spokesmen David Beatty and Mark Harvey.
