DARBY, Aug. 3, 2011 — State Sen. Anthony H. Williams, in partnership with Darby Community Development Corporation, invite Baby Boomers and beyond to a free seminar that focuses on “Mind, Body, Spirit: Navigating Life After 50+.”
The event will take place on Wednesday, Aug. 17, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Delaware County Technical High School, 701 Henderson Blvd. in Folcroft. Entrance is on Delmar Drive. Registration and continental breakfast starts at 9:30 a.m.
The 8th Senatorial District is home to a great number of mature citizens, many of whom are facing an increasingly complex world and need guidance in navigating it, Williams said.
In fact, in the Delaware County segment of the district, one in five residents is age 50 or older. In areas such as Yeadon and Glenolden, one in four residents is 50 or older. In Ridley Park, it’s closer to one in three, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
“While this area has a larger population of older citizens, they are a smart, health-conscious and active group of people — and I include myself in that group,” Williams said. “This event will help us gain even more knowledge about living a happier, healthier lifestyle. It’ll be a great day, so I welcome my fellow Baby Boomers and beyond to take part in this informative and fun-filled, adults-only free event.”
The seminar will feature a vibrant day of expert opinions on various subjects, ranging from nutrition with Fran Alloway of the Penn State Cooperative Extension to hot-button topics like holding on to your home with Raquel Smith from the Senior Law Center to kinship care with AARP’s Joi Hopkins to financial security with State Farm representatives.
In addition, attendees also will have access to a resource pavilion with details on travel and leisure, as well as health screenings from Mercy Health Systems.
This event is being underwritten with major sponsorship from Manor Care Nursing Home. Additional support has been provided by WaWa, AARP and Bravo Health.
