Free health insurance assistance at library

If you recently loss your healthcare coverage and/or are unsure of your options for getting health insurance plans for family members you should schedule a one-on-one session with a Multicultural Community Resource Center (MCRC) representative (based out of Erie) who will be assisting individuals at both the Youngsville Public Library and Sugar Grove Free Library on Wednesday, October 26th and Wednesday, November 16th.

New health care laws require that everyone have health insurance. And if you do not have health insurance, you may have to pay a fine when you file your income taxes for 2016. The MCRC offers assistance navigating the Marketplace, sometimes called Obamacare, which is a site where individuals and families can go to purchase qualified health insurance plans if needed. Most people that enroll in a Marketplace health insurance plan qualify for cost savings programs that can lower their monthly premiums and out of pocket costs.

Depending on household size and income, you might be eligible for a state program that offers free or low-cost coverage for you and your family. In most states, the programs are called Medicaid or the Children’s health Insurance Program (CHIP). Since Pennsylvania has expanded their medical Assistance Program (Medicaid) most individuals with low income will now qualify. There is no deadline for applying for Medicaid and CHIP but the Marketplace Open Enrollment starts November 1 – January 31 each year.

If you would like to learn more, schedule an appointment at either Youngsville Public Library (YPL) or Sugar Grove Free Library (SGFL). Brochures and additional FAQ information will be available at both libraries. The MCRC representative will be at YPL from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm both Wednesday, October 26th & Wednesday, November 16th and will be at SGFL from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm both days. Please remember to bring proof of income or last year’s income tax paperwork with you and the social security number of each individual that will be applying for health insurance. Call Sugar Grove Free Library (814) 489-7872 or Youngsville Public Library (814) 563-7670 with questions and/or to schedule a private appointment.

1971 dinner/dance

It was like ‘Footloose’ Saturday night at the Youngsville Alumni Dinner Dance. And did everyone have a great time! Great food, stories, laughs, a rockin band and three rooms of 300 attending.

It was the most successful in the six years the Class of 1971 signed up to organize the event. The group worked to build funds to host the event for YHS Alumni. With Spaghetti dinners, and basket raffle the group raised funds to rent a facility and contract a live band. Going from a deficit to a success, the years of hosting to a success, the committee would like to say a special ‘Thanks’ to YHS attending class reunions, 1966, 1971, 1976, 1981 and to many other attending mixed YHS alumni.

Plans are already being made for next year. Alumni Coming Home Events are the first weekend in October, with next year’s alumni date, October 7, 2017. Class reunions interested in attending or information contact Kathy, 814-489-3535 or Becky, 814-563-4791. You can make your reservations now. Come live through your Youngsville High School memories and remember always, GO EAGLES!
