Vehicle Safety Inspection (FREE)
In the Spring of 2014, 2015, and 2016 - We partnered up with the DeKalb Township and Kishwaukee Automotive Students to give Seniors' vehicles a free 25 point safety inspection.  We had refreshments and information about car repair scams for all Seniors who attended.  It's officially an Annual Event now.


A Visit WIth The Coroner

In January of 2015 we teamed up with DeKalb County Coroner, Dennis Miller.  Mr. Miller gave a presentation to a packed house on what his duties entail and what to expect if the coroner ever visits your home or the home of a loved one.  He received lots of great questions and we will likely repeat this event in the future.
