As a child, you are carefree and energetic, but may sometimes get frustrated that you cannot do things without the help of an adult.

The Governor’s Committee on Aging meeting scheduled for 10 a.m. today at the James River Senior and Community Center was canceled due to weather conditions, according to a press release from the North Dakota Department of Human Services.
The meeting has not been rescheduled.
During the holiday season many people travel back to North Dakota or to rural areas to visit loved ones. North Dakota Department of Human Services officials say that family gatherings provide an opportunity to visit with aging parents and other older relatives about their changing abilities and needs, and to plan for future care needs.
The Governor’s Committee on Aging is seeking four new members to fill vacancies on the 14-member advisory body. The committee meets quarterly to focus on national and state issues and challenges facing older individuals and acts as an advisory body for the North Dakota Department of Human Services’ Aging Services Division.
