By Eileen Doherty, MS ~

Denver, Colo. – We all want to have fun, need information and can always use resources.  Join the Salute to Seniors on August 24, 2024, from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm at the Greek Events Center, 4610 E Alameda Av, Denver.

The Salute will feature more than 75 exhibit booths and a farmer’s market with free fresh produce and fruit.  Other features include playing bingo; having your balance assessed, reviewing susceptibility to falls, taking your blood pressure and testing your body mass index.

You can get tips for emotional well-being and shop the clothing boutique. Forney Museum of Transportation is bringing back their classic cars. 

 Get tips on your family history searches through the Denver Public Library. View the awe-inspiring statuary and exquisite ceiling art paintings on a tour of the Greek Assumption Cathedral that is next door.

The Salute will focus on a better understanding of issues facing older adults.  Presentations will include emotional well-being, artificial intelligence, banking scams, buying Class 4 shingles for your house to get better rates on your property insurance, 2025 Senior housing income tax credit, and changes to the senior property tax exemption.

Help will be available with dental applications, getting a personal copy of Senior Resource Guidebook, finding a Telephone Buddy, advance care planning and counseling on aging issues.
