On Friday, October 16, 2015, Cathy Yotka, Northern Coordinator of SCSEP (Senior Community Service Employment Program) and Lillian Jordan, Program Assistant for Harrisonburg, will discuss ways for “Keeping Seniors Active.” They will review volunteer and part time activities available in the area, and identify how individuals can get plugged into the resources that support continued participation in things they enjoy.
The meeting will also feature a “member spotlight” presentation by Dr. Michael Gowen of MobileEyes, a division of Shenandoah Eye Care. MobileEyes comes to nursing homes, rehab facilities, assisted living residences, and similar locations to provide eye care for residents and the staff, as well.
