3. What do you consider Jeffersontown's
hat street do you live on?
All survey questions should be answered. Ballots responding only to the straw ballot without answering the issue questions will not be counted. So community issues
may be defined according to specific neighborhoods, the street name question must
be filled in, or the ballot will not be counted. Results are scheduledlto be published
in The Jeffersonian on Thursday, Oct 5.
The J.I.A.A. had originally intended
to hold a workship after the survey,
in order to organize programs which
A'ould serve any needs of the elderly
hlch the survey might reveal.
Now, Bowers said, the JIAA is seriously considering turning the results ove
o the rapidly growing and highly sue
:essful M&M ("Mature and Modern"
The M&M Club, formed several months
ago as the St. Edward's Senior Citizens
Club, has grown to more than 40 members. "The group is really going,':
said Mrs. Carolyn Stewart, who was
In charge of the survey and active with
the M&M group.
The club now is coordinated by Ruth
Frederick and Betty Crumple, with help
from other local individuals. Mrs, Frederick bubbles with enthusiasm when she
speaks of the M&M Club,
She said she does not really consider
it to be "just a senior citizens club"
members range from the early 00f
to the 80's.
This is "a good age span," she said,
and the club can serve as "preventive
medicine" by getting its members Involved in the community and with each
other before they get to the lonely and
withdrawn stage. The club draws its
membership from the Jeffersontown and

Frederick agrees it is better

rather than form new groups. This fall
M&M's plan to expand to weekly

2. What do you believe to be Jeffersontown'! greatest assets?
they are not able to do their own light
maintenance work such as changing light
bulbs or carryine garbage to the street.
Sixteen said they have a problem with
transportation, awl five are not able tc
prepare their own meals. Seven woulc
like to receive a 'laily phone call from
someone to check on them.
The conclusions of the surveying committee state, "We probably did not have
the names of those who need a lot
o! home-typ- e
services. One thing that
is that most oi
these people are quite proud and a
sensitive about 'taking' services
from other people,"
Other questions dealt with individual
interests. The majority of the people
