Happy New Year, friends!
As I put this issue together, I thought a lot about my parents. My dad is 90, my mom is 84. Both still live at home, surrounded by the things that bring them joy. Both are also still pretty active, so I know that if they lived here, they’d be eager to participate in the many classes, workshops and programs available for seniors in our community.
I hope that if you’re an older adult – or if you love someone who is! – you’ll take a look at the terrific features on art, painting, and dance classes offered close to home, the incredible variety of book clubs, writing workshops, and tech support provided by the Prince William Public Library System, Donna Wood’s inspiring and informative piece on seniors finding joy in college classrooms, and the excellent advice our own Yaron Linett has to offer on thriving in place. I hope also that, if we’ve missed something you think is a terrific program or opportunity for older adults, you’ll write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know.
Thank you for joining us as we kick off 2020. See you next month!
