Age Into Action: An Active Aging Expo 

Saturday, April 8, 2017
St. George Elementary School
200 Blackjack Road

9:00 am - 3 pm

In today's world, many  us will enjoy health and vitality that leads to longer life expectancies than previous generations. However, this means many individuals will spend a third of their lives in retirement. There are a lot of myths and beliefs about what it means to be "old," and society expects the aging population to conform to these expectations.

The truth is there is not a standard way of aging. Like any other life stage, it looks different for each of us, and there is no reason why this stage can't be the most meaningful of all. Join us to learn more about active aging in today's world.
