10th Anniversary – Aging Well Living Well Expo!

Hello from Holly…

10th Anniversary of the Aging Well Living Well Expo!

“Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner anywhere” – Chinese Proverb

Join us Friday, October 6th at Sunday River in Newry for our 10th annual Aging Well Living Well Expo. This year promises to be bigger and better than ever! You will have the opportunity to explore and try new things, all day, at the beautiful Sunday River Resort amidst the gorgeous fall foliage. Last year over 300 people attended and we expect even more this year.

What can you explore? There will be serious workshops such as Preparing for the Future, Staying Sharp as You Age, Medicare 101, The Opiate Addiction Crisis in Maine, Managing Diabetes, and Self-Defense for Seniors. Or maybe you’ll decide to attend a workshop on Downsizing or Antique Appraising. Have you always wanted to understand how to navigate the long-term care system? We have a workshop dedicated to just that topic.

There will also be fun workshops: try jewelry making or a craft class, learn about essential oils or model railroading. Perhaps you’ve always wanted to know about hypnosis; we’ll have that too!

We have a few surprises for the afternoon you won’t want to miss! Remember, it’s our 10th anniversary of this very popular event, so that calls for fun! We’ll have line-dancing, live musical entertainment, Reiki, aqua fitness classes, and you won’t want to miss the display of special treats provided by the SeniorsPlus Nutrition Team!

All this, and a dynamic Keynote Speaker who will walk us through creating a time capsule. That promises to be interesting and inspiring! Mark your calendars now. Just $25 for the day-long event includes breakfast, lunch, and snacks.

The full brochure is available online or by calling SeniorsPlus at 1-800-427-1241. Some workshops have limited space. Registration is required, so call today and reserve a spot!

Holly Zielinski is the Director of Community Services for SeniorsPlus.
