What do you consider Jeffersontown's UU W 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. 1'. 'ir"i 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" :iub. 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medicine" by getting its members Involved in the community and with each other before they get to the lonely and withdrawn stage.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 Traditional.

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 w is most evident is that most oi these people are quite proud and a 11' tie sensitive about 'taking' services from other people," Other questions dealt with individual interests.
