My friend Traci Ruiz, retired Lansing Police Department Lieutenant and graduate of Michigan State University, talked recently with WMMQ midday host Duran Martinez on In Contact recently about TRIAD, which is an all-volunteer organization serves and enriches the lives of older adults through education and outreach.


Their website states:

Our local chapter serves the tri-county region of Ingham, Eaton, and Clinton counties.

Our group of dedicated volunteers meet monthly (except December) on the third Tuesday of each month at 3:00 pm at Lansing Fire Station 8 located at 815 Marshall St. in Lansing. Our meetings are open to the public and welcome new members at anytime throughout the year. For more information about our meetings and to receive meeting notification and documents, please email our Secretary, Michelle Jackson, at

To learn more about our ongoing EducationOutreach, and Fundraising, please visit our Programs page.

You can hear Duran's conversation with Traci below; maybe you have some time to share to serve the elders in Greater Lansing.
