WHAT'S HAPPENING NOW?
******************************************************************

IMPORTANT!
RALLY AND PRESS CONFERENCE
FOR ELEVATORS IN OUR SUBWAYS!

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9th, 12:15-1:15 PM
7th Avenue & 9th Street F train station


Brad Lander is organizing this rally because the MTA will soon update
its list of stations that will be upgraded with elevators.  
This event is to urge the MTA to include the 7th Avenue station on that list.

Please come so that our voices are heard!
The larger the size of our crowd,
the louder the demand for change will be.
Please bring SIGNS, your voice and your energy!

NEW WEB PAGE:  Buddy Check-In 
Some GNPS members have said that they would like the reassurance of having a check-in phone call or text each day.  We believe that this works best when it is a reciprocal arrangement put in place by the people involved. This page has been created to help GNPS members find other members who are interested in participating in a Buddy Check-In Plan.
Check out the page for more information about checking in!

ANOTHER NEW WEB PAGE:  Housing
As many of us are aware, good housing for older people who want to age-in-place in Park Slope is difficult to find. So we are starting this HOUSING page so our members can post the type of accommodation they are looking for or have available, and we will post new entries on our E-BLAST as well. Please check it out!
