General Guide  2023  – 40th Issue – Senior Edition – 

It’s 2023, and this year’s issue is a milestone, General Guide 2023 – 40th Issue – Senior Edition features reasons why Albion is an “Age-Friendly” community. If you live in Albion or nearby, you received a copy of the General Guide in the Morning Star. The General Guide is available at many locations listed in the Frequently Called Numbers section of the Guide, on the last page.

The General Guide began over 9 years ago to provide multi-faceted communication channels for the greater Albion area. Now, as we simultaneously reflect on the last nine years and anticipate the year ahead, there are many stories about challenges our community has faced and exciting projects ahead.

The General Guide 2023 – 40th Issue – Senior Edition digs into how the city is collaboratively improving the quality of life by focusing on eight different areas outlined in the General Guide. This is the time of year to set our sights on goals and Albion is now officially underway in becoming part of the AARP-designated Age-Friendly Network of Communities. 

The Calhoun County Senior Millage allocation raises $4M a year to provide free resources to seniors aged 60 years and older who reside in Calhoun County.

Healthcare, transportation, hearing, eyecare, home repairs, and more are covered through the Senior Millage. Learn more about the Calhoun County Senior Millage resources with links to official information, and more local senior groups at
