Sterling. There was a dual program with both a presentation about our Hispanic neighbors and discount prescrip- tion drugs. During this season, when we are historically reminded of the unity of differing cultures, RSVP planned last month's pro- gram to incorporate a presenta- tion by a Hispanic couple, Dr. and Mrs. Victor Ballestero. He gomery County High School. While the Ballesteros led the program, sharing very interest- ing information about the cul- ture of their homeland of Costa Rica, many questions were directed to them as well, so that the interchange was very enlightening. This included information about the geograph- ical area, a temperate climate where the temperatures stay in the 70s most of the time. The primary religion is Roman Catholic, which then is taught and practiced in their schools, though students of other reli- gions can opt out of such specif- ic segments.

There are larger families than is the norm in the U.S.. and medical care is provided for everyone. They have no mili- tary. Their dietary staple is rice at every meal, along with meat or fish and lots of tropical fruits and vegetables, so obesity is uncommon. Dr. Ballestero takes groups periodically for tours of Costa Rica, which sounded very inviting. In addition to the above pro- gram, a special effort had been made to invite community seniors who may not usually attend the RSVP Wellness events, to come this day, if they would have inquires about dis- count prescription drug help. Multiple small-group informa- tion sessions were held for those who had this concern or Medicare-related quesnons. Ethel Howard, Project Coord- inator with KY Seniors Saving Medicare, distributed lists of pharmaceutical companies who have discount programs, as well as Personal Health Care Journals to keep track of medical related information. There are several volunteers in Montgomery County trained by KSSM. who are available to help Medicare recipients sort out their Medi- care Summary Notices or ques- tions with issues about these matters. Those having received Medicare-training from Bath County are Ada June Thompson and Lon Wells. The central num- ber to request Medicare help is either 1-606-783-5125 or toll- free, where you can leave a mes- sage for call-back, 1-866-275- 5772. Part of the welcoming com- mittee for the seniors were Kaye Henry and Peggy Pierson, Menit'ee County clowns. Fol- lowing the program, a nice lunch was served by the Mt Sterling Recreation Commission; there- after, door prizes were awarded amidst some readings of a Thanksgiving poem and touches Turkey centerpieces  The OES school-age child care center pre-schoot class created turkeys for table centerpieces for OES Thanksgiving dinner, November 19.
