Harris County Precinct 4 to rename senior adult program

0

Harris County Precinct 4 will change the name of its senior adult program to Precinct 4 Encore! effective June 1, according to a May 23 news release.

The 27-year-old program provides a variety of activities, volunteer opportunities and day trips for adults 50 years and older. Program director Jan Sexton said the name change is an attempt to eliminate negative stereotypes associated with aging.

“We don’t want to call our participants anything other than adults,” Sexton said in the release. “We want to focus on new ways to serve this growing population who challenge conventional thinking about aging and seek to discover and rediscover purposeful ways to make a difference throughout their lives.”

Upcoming events include a San Jacinto Battle Monument and Museum Tour on May 29, a volunteer opportunity at the Houston Food Bank on June 4, a tour of the Alley Theatre on June 6 and a trip to Nacogdoches’ Texas Blueberry Festival on June 8.
