Seniors’ Council Presents Vintage and Vibrant Event in September and Medicare Information Session in October
The Seniors’ Council of Douglas County, in collaboration with Aging Resources of Douglas County and Douglas County Government, is co-hosting a day-long educational event entitled Vintage & Vibrant 2023: Exploring the Latest Trends in Living Well & Aging Well. Our signature event will be held on Thursday, September 28th from 8 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. at the Parker Arts, Culture and Events (PACE) Center, 20000 South Pikes Peak Ave in Parker.
Vintage & Vibrant 2023 is specifically designed to entertain, inform and intrigue an older adult audience. Our program will include two engaging keynote speakers, multiple informative breakout sessions, three interactive activities, numerous event partners, morning refreshments, lunch, guest bags and door prizes. Your $10 registration fee covers it all, with scholarships available if needed.
We begin the day with a continental breakfast and our morning keynote speaker Jeanne Nott, 2022 Ms. Colorado Senior America. Jeanne’s philosophy of life is “… have a sense of humor and enthusiasm! It will add years to your life and life to your years.” Her positivity will energize us and set the stage for the rest of the day.
During lunch, our keynote speaker is Dr. Carson Bruns, Associate Professor at the University of Colorado in Boulder. He will share his fascinating research on converging nanotechnology and biomedical engineering on the skin to create a new wave of ‘tattoos’ that strive to keep us healthier. You’ll definitely be intrigued!
Vintage & Vibrant 2023 would not be possible without the support of our co-hosting organizations Aging Resources of Douglas County (ARDC), a local non-profit organization providing a wide variety of services to our older population, and Douglas County Government, currently conducting a comprehensive Older Adult Initiative, as well as our event partners.
And now meet our Platinum event partners; Visiting Angels – Littleton, Seven Stones Botanical Garden Cemetery, Centura Health, the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) and Bridgewater Castle Rock. Each of these partners focuses on enhancing the lives of older adults in their own special way. Be sure to visit their tables at the event to learn more about their fabulous organizations.
