Driver Safety Course: Attention all members over the age of 55: we are interested in setting up a driver safety course. We need to have at least 8-10 people in order to host the class. This will involve an 8-hour class for new participants and a 4 hour “refresher” class for former participants who wish to keep their insurance discount. After taking the class you will get a 5% discount on your auto insurance bill. Some insurances will offer more than the required 5%. The discount is good for 3 years. The fee is $20 for AARP members and $25 for non-members. If you are interested or know someone who might be interested, please leave a message at Granville UMC at 717-248-5958. Once we get a count of those interested then we will proceed to set up a class.
