Senior Center to host series of educational events throughout 2017
The Summit County Community & Senior Center is ushering in the New Year with an educational series of events, discussions and presentations to help Summit's 55 and older population live fulfilling, healthy and active lives. The Aging Gracefully series will span all of 2017, with sessions scheduled at least once per month.
"There's no question that our bodies and minds undergo real changes as we get older, but there are plenty of ways to take the bull by the horns and make the most of your golden years," Community & Senior Center Manager Lorie Williams said in a release. "In this event series, we'll cover a broad range of health and wellness topics, including strategies you can implement immediately or use to plan ahead for the future."
Most events are free, and all will take place at the Community and Senior Center, located on the Summit County Commons campus at 0083 Nancy's Place in Frisco.
