HRRC hosts free Boomer Fest on Sept. 17
Are you one of the millions of Americans born between 1946 and 1964? If so, you’ll want to be part of Home Repair Resource Center’s (HRRC) “Boomer Fest ’16: I Can See Clearly Now” on Saturday, Sept. 17. Boomer Fest will take place at the Senior Activity Center at the CH Community Center, 1 Monticello Blvd., 10. a.m. to 3 p.m. This free event will offer advice, discussions, products and other resources to help attendees plan their futures, and an opportunity to win prizes.
Highlights will include:
- Advice tables, featuring advice from experts on home repair and remodeling, health and safety, money management, consumer protection and more.
- Breakout sessions on FLEX Design—how to design spaces that are functional, long-term and expandable—and Creating a Beneficial Community, in which attendees can explore how to share their time, talents and skills with others in exchange for the resources they need.
- Keynote talk by Laurie G. Steiner, noted elder care attorney and the host of WKYC-TV’s "Golden Opportunities." Steiner will discuss how to be proactive and enthusiastic about your next adventure in life, and how to use your experience to identify and remove obstacles.
