RENO, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- To mark the 49th anniversary of Medicare and the 79th anniversary of Social Security, area retirees with the Nevada Alliance for Retired Americans will celebrate these important birthdays by having a gala gathering with speeches and refreshments.

“Retirees in our area are struggling to get by, but they know how much worse things would be without Medicare and Social Security. Because of Medicare, seniors are able to pay bills, see a doctor, fill a prescription, and afford nursing home care,” said Scotty Watts, President of the Nevada Alliance.

The gala will be held August 4 in the Washoe County Senior Services at 1155 E 9th Street at 12:30 p.m. About 300 seniors are expected to attend.
