MassDOT Registry of Motor Vehicles to Present
Shifting Gears Program

(Boston) – In today’s world, driving a car may seem to be a necessary part of life, however, owning a vehicle and holding a driver’s license are privileges that come with a great deal of responsibility.
Join Michele Ellicks, Community Outreach Coordinator for the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV), on [date & time] at the [location], for an hour-long program entitled, “Shifting Gears.”
Ms. Ellicks will discuss issues facing senior drivers, the Commonwealth’s rules of the road, recent changes that have taken place at the RMV, as well as the warning signs of unsafe driving.  She will also share the requirements to apply for a handicap placard or plate as well as a Massachusetts identification card; the most recent research concerning mature drivers and alternative forms of transportation. Learn what’s available in your community.
        Portions of the program have been featured on WCVB-TV’s “Chronicle” as well as in the Boston Globe, Patriot Ledger, and Springfield Union News.  In July 2000, the program received the Outstanding Public Service Safety Award by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators.
        For additional information call the Stoughton Council on Aging at 781-344-8882

Meet and Greet with Maureen
Maureen Millett, COA Chairman of the Board of Directors,
gives COA/Senior Center tours and information.
Welcome packets are available with coupons and everything
you need to know about the senior center.

My Senior Center Identification Card
This program allows seniors, using a keychain tag, to access a touch screen menu where they are greeted by name, receive messages, sign in for programs, and view future events.  For the senior center staff, the system tracks program participation, enabling them to manage and evaluate the activities provided, while significantly reducing paperwork.  Keeping track of these numbers enables the COA to receive funding each year.  It’s important and so easy to use!  By swiping your identification card you will be eligible for a monthly drawing.  Please stop by the COA office to sign up.  Drawings will be for gift certificates, exercise passes, transportation tickets, etc.  Get one today! Seniors from other towns are welcome to get a My Senior Center Card too.  The more the merrier!  For more information about My Senior Center you can go on their website
