AARP Black Forest

A Mountain View Electric Association team, led by Jason Matzke, North Operations Superintendent, provided AARP Chapter 1100 with a series of demonstrations and a discussion on the dangers and safety measures associated with downed electrical wires. The Mountain View team used their specially rigged trailer to graphically show the devastating effects of high voltages on tissues similar to those in the human body. The June 8 program at the Black Forest AARP meeting was especially appreciated since most of the chapter members live in areas that have seen downed power lines due to storms. It was, however, a good lesson for anyone who might come upon an accident or situation where downed power lines are a factor. The basic safety rule is that a power company must be called before approaching any power line that is down, whether it appears dangerous or not. The Mountain View program and demonstration is available to area youth and adult groups. Call 719-494-2622 and talk to Jason or Avery if you are interested in scheduling a demonstration. The chapter business meeting focused on the upcoming activities, including the chapterís 50th anniversary celebration starting at 1 p.m. on Aug.10 in the Black Forest Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall. All friends of the chapter and current and past member families are invited to attend. Activities will include a presentation by AARP Colorado in recognizing the occasion, a review of the chapter history and a personal recognition of all octogenarian chapter members present. Cake and ice cream will be served. The Black Forest AARP Chapter meets the second Wednesday of each month at noon in the Fellowship Hall of the Lutheran Church, 12455 Black Forest Road. All ages are eligible for membership. Come visit us and enjoy our monthly programs. The next chapter meeting will be the annual picnic at the Black Forest Regional Park on July 13. Call Candace at 314-330-0411 for more information.
