The event is for seniors, caregivers, aging professionals and students. The event will include guest speaker and longtime politician Rip Gooch.

The day’s topics include staying at home, exercise, planning for long-term care, budgeting on a fixed income and VA benefits.

The cost is $10 per person, $15 per couple or family member, and $7 for students. In order to guarantee a boxed lunch, registration by June 12 is recommended.
