May is Older Americans Month, a time to celebrate both the gifts and the challenges of being 60+. You are cordially invited to attend the Ninth Annual NH Conference on Aging, "Maximizing Your Potential: Let Your Senior Spirit Soar", scheduled for Thursday, May 28, 2009 at the Radisson Hotel in Manchester, NH.
Workshops for the 2009 conference have been chosen based on feedback provided by conference attendees last year, and include, among others: "Secrets of Stress Management", "Medicines and You-You Have The Power!", "Lighten Up: Practical Tips and Tools for Living with Vision Loss" (please note that these first three workshops will be offered in both the morning and afternoon sessions), "Assistive Technology: Promoting Independence and Safety In The Home", "Plan Today to Enjoy Tomorrow"; and "Learning Later, Living Greater".
The deadline for conference registration is May 11. Due to planning needs, registrations cannot be taken at the door. Registration fees are $20 for people age 60 and older and $50 for all others. This fee includes admission to all conference events, including continental breakfast and lunch. By popular demand, The Hillcrest Terrace Tones, a group of older musicians led by Paul Bordeleau, will return to provide entertainment.
More information on registration, exhibits, sponsors and workshops may be obtained by calling Priscilla Davis at The Community Health Institute (603-573-3302).
