ALTON – A rally in support of programs jeopardized by the proposed state budget will take place from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Monday at Senior Services Plus, 2603 N. Rodgers Ave.

Clients of Senior Services Plus’ In-Home Care will speak on how the proposed cuts to state-funded Community Care Programs will affect services. State Sen. Bill Haine, D-Alton, and state Rep. Dan Beiser, D-Alton, will be speaking, as will volunteer lobbyist Jim Pennebaker, representing AARP during the rally.

The “Save Community Care Rally” will provide a forum for other guest speakers to address the crowd representing in-home services, adult day services, and emergency home response services.

The rally will take place in Senior Services’ cafeteria space. Parking is available behind the building. A shuttle will also be offered for overflow from the nearby Save-A-Lot parking lot, located at 2980 Homer Adams Parkway in Alton.
