    This can confuse people.".is offering a free training series"...."A donation of $15 per person or $20 per couple is requested for the class series." Many more programs are being promoted like this--Ive had seniors say to me that they can not afford it...I am constantly pointing out--that no one should be turned away on a "suggested" donation. People putting out different programs this way--you are making people feel bad...shame on you. the seniors want to give their fair share--some just dont have it. And this program should just keep with "free"--it is suppose to help seniors figure out what they are entitled to--since they worked their whole lives to make sure the next generations had "something." Lately I feel children and seniors are being left out--pushed to the side...I hope they shove back.
