Lona Kelly has begun her new role as the director for the Harvey County Department on Aging.

Kelly started working for the County in October. Prior to joining Harvey County, she worked eight years as the Older Americans Act program manager for the Central Plains Area Agency on Aging.

"I really enjoy working and supporting older adults as they find their options and their best paths," Kelly said. "Our environments have changed, and those service options have changed even from 10 years ago."

Kelly has established several goals for the department early in her tenure, including expanding support services, recruiting drivers for the Interurban transportation program and building up the volunteer corps for RSVP.
