Ark Valley Voice is answering the call from Colorado Mountain College (CMC) and the year-round resource known as Embracing Aging Chaffee (a program of Chaffee County Public Health) to help them get out the word of a free and exciting new course series they call Adventures in Aging. The free offering is set for 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon, Monday, September 18 at the CMC meeting rooms at 349 E. 9th Street in Salida.
Come spend the morning learning from experts on a host of different topics relevant to your interests. Chose from a range of classes, from yoga to financial planning, local geology, Medicare 101, and Caring for the Caregiver.
This year for the first time, the side courses that had been offered at the Embracing Aging fair were separated out to become their own event, to better-focus on the wealth of information presented.
Getting the word out about this free event is a priority for Chaffee County Public Health (CCPH). “Help us share this wonderful opportunity for our older adults to learn, have fun and meet new people,” said CCPH Aging Well Coordinator/Health Navigator Molly Bischoff.
