Receives Specialized Telecommunications

 

Mr. Lawton Deane, of SPECIALIZED TELECOMMUNICATIONS ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (STAP),

was the featured guest at the monthly gathering of Sloan’s AARP Chapter 5430. 

The STAP Program is funded by the TEXAS UNIVERSAL FUND (each month those charges appear on every phone bill), is for both children and adults, and is not based on income.  Applicants simply must be TEXAS RESIDENTS and have a condition/disability that limits their ability to use the telephone:  difficulty hearing, seeing, speaking, mobility (moving), or remembering.

 

Mr. Deane showcased a variety of telephones with specific features designed to meet specific needs along with other forms of assistive technology (IPADs, speaker attachments, etc.)  AARP members simply completed the application form, showing proof of residency in the state of Texas, and will participate in a follow-up session with Mr. Deane once the items are delivered and ready for use.  IT WAS FREE!!!   FREE!!!  FREE!!!

Takes Excursion to Galveston, Texas

 

Members of Sloan’s Denver Harbor Area Chapter #5430 of A.A.R.P., Inc.  took an excursion to Galveston, Texas for a day of enrichment, fellowship, and fine dining.  The weather was “picture-perfect” as the “seasoned seniors” boarded the Precinct I bus and headed to the G. Lee Gallery in historic downtown Galveston – 2215 Post Office Street - where Mr. George Douglas Lee - writer, artist, musician, public speaker, published playwright, and host of Electric Theatre Radio Hour, is the owner and host.  

George Lee is the only Galveston tour guide featured on the History Channel and the Smithsonian Channel. 

George Lee’s presentation at the art gallery featured a riveting documentary about Galveston’s storm of 1900, at a time when Galveston was one of America’s wealthiest cities.  The storm’s aftermath left thousands dead and the city near complete destruction.

 


 

 


 



Following the presentation at the G. Lee Gallery, Mr. George Douglas Lee boarded the bus and took the seniors on a tour of Galveston’s historic district.  The Galveston visit concluded with lunch at Gaido’s Restaurant on Seawall Boulevard.
