This year’s Vibrant Living! A Senior Empowerment Event is receiving a $5,000 sponsorship from the city.
The event will take place April 20 at First Baptist Church, 1222 W. University Ave., Georgetown.
Guests can connect with exhibitors and sponsors at a resource fair that offers services and guidance in legal planning, caregiving, health, wellness, volunteering and active aging, the event’s website said. Workshops and informational sessions will also be offered. About 450 people are expected to attend.
The Georgetown Commission on Aging worked with a steering committee that organized last year’s inaugural event with the help of area businesses, nonprofits and individuals, according to City Manager David Morgan. Due to its success, this year’s event will be expanded, he added.
“One of the commission’s priorities has been to support the creation of a one-stop event where seniors, caregivers and families could gain practical advice and learn about a multitude of resources that make planning and decision-making easier so that aging doesn’t get in the way of them living their best life,” staff documents said.
