LEEDS – The Rural Androscoggin County Triad met Nov. 16 at the Rural Community Action Ministry with nine members present. Gilbert Turcotte has resigned as chairman of the group due to his work. Emily Pike will act as chairwoman until election of officers in May.

The triad has received a grant from the Weed and Seed Program and beacon lights have been purchased for seniors. The towns of Leeds, Livermore, Greene and Turner have received some of the lights. They will be given to the rescue teams in the towns. The teams will call the town office if more are needed. The blinking lights could alert a neighbor that someone is in distress and show the rescue team the house. Wales and Sabattus will receive lights at a later date.

It was the last meeting with Vista Leader Gretchen Lee, who was instrumental in starting the triad, which works with the Faith in Action Group and RCAM for seniors in the area. Lee and her husband leave on Dec. 3 for their Michigan home.

Terri Bernier of SeniorsPlus discussed the Medicare sign-up. The triad meets from 2 to 3 p.m. the third Wednesday of each month during the winter.
