The Active Aging Coalition is a grassroots organization consisting of seniors, their families, caregivers, and other community advocates interested in improving lives of seniors in our community. Through monthly meetings and community engagement, we learn about each other’s participation in the senior community, find ways to work together more efficiently, and increase our own understanding of available resources.Sometimes, when searching for these resources, gaps in services are discovered as well. This has encouraged creativity among the group to find better ways to use resources that already exist or at times to create entirely new solutions. One such solution was the creation of the Commission on Aging. They have been responsible for the very successful Creative Aging Festival, a month long city-wide celebration of elder artists addressing the benefits of creativity to healthful aging.We produce a monthly newsletter that includes up-to-date meeting minutes, announcements, and upcoming events. We also send out monthly invitations to our upcoming meetings. If you would like to receive these, please click the Contact button and send us your name and email address. Meetings begin and end promptly in recognition of everyone’s busy schedule, but you are welcome to stay longer to visit and network with those you meet. We hope to see you at one of our meetings!
