‘Lunch and learn’ workshop
TRIAD of Dakota County will host a “lunch and learn” workshop for area seniors on reducing and helping prevent crimes targeted at older adults. The workshop, for ages 62 and older, runs 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 2, at the Apple Valley Senior Center, 14601 Hayes Road, Apple Valley.

Attendees will learn about personal safety issues and crime trends that target seniors – and have the ability to ask questions and voice their concerns.

TRIAD is a partnership between local law enforcement, senior citizens and community groups with the objective to reduce crime against seniors as well as the unwarranted fear of crime that older adults sometimes experience.

Lunch is sponsored by Ebenezer. For more information or to register, call 952-707-4120. Space is limited.
