Tobias Tillmon, AARPGA Interim State Director, joined Macon-Bibb ‘s Mayor, Sheriff, Fire Chief, District Attorney, other key leaders, and local citizens for the August 4 National Night Out event where over 100 individuals were in attendance. This locally sponsored event is part of a national program designed to encourage community leaders and local citizens to come together and publically pledge to “stamp out crime”. Tillmon delivered remarks at the kick-off program.
He acknowledged that Macon-Bibb is an AARP/World Health Organization designated Age-Friendly (AF)/Livable Community. As such, the personal safety and security of its citizens is an important factor that is emphasized in AARP’s AF criteria. He also highlighted AARP’s Fraud Watch Network Program as an important tool in identifying and combating fraud. Tillmon invited all participants to join him, AARPGA Associate State Director-Community Outreach, Charima Young; AARPGA Interim State Director, Myrtle Habersham, and the dedicated volunteers at the Adams Street Senior Center for a luncheon presentation on fraud prevention strategies. Thanks were extended to the local officials/citizens and AARP volunteers for their ongoing assistance in delivering AARP’s programs and services throughout the Middle Georgia area.
