Save the Date now to get a multi-point inspection on your car! Volunteer Mechanics, AARP CarFit Instructors, Sheriff’s Office Explorers and others collaborate each year to help older adults fit their cars correctly, make sure tires are filled adequately, check fluids and provide advice on next steps for car owners.

This event has proven to be a valuable tool for our township senior population. Last year, two residents took their cars immediately to local mechanics for more serious problems that needed to be corrected right away! Our goal is to keep older adults safe in their cars and in their driving practices. Some morning snacks and plenty of information is provided! Look forward to seeing you there. You DO NOT have to register to attend.

Additionally, this year, we are looking to train any local resident volunteers, during the week before the event, to help with the “CarFit” process. The instructional class would be given here at the township building. If you’re looking to volunteer for this event and pass some time doing something worthwhile, please contact me and I will get back to you right away!
