The Oasis will sponsor trained volunteers to assist senior citi- zens in two areas. The first service is provid- ing tax filing services for the elderly. Dominic Dalpoas, who has received training and per- formed this service for several years in Logan County, will be available the fourth Tues- day of February and March to assist local seniors in submit- ting their tax information. Mr. Dalpoas cautions that he can give no tax advice and farmers and other, more complicated situations, should be handled by a professional. However, for many seniors the service is very beneficial.
