Starting support group

TO THE EDITOR: I became handicapped in later life. I had never imagined that there are no support groups for the handicapped. Yet, that seems to be the truth.

I propose to initiate a support group for handicapped persons in this area. According to interest, this could be telephone reassurance or physical meetings. at a barrier-free location. The group would determine the format of communication

If you are interested in this support group, contact Joe Swinyer at P.O. Box 611, Plattsburgh, New York 12901.
