In a collaborative effort, the Bristol Senior Center (BSC) and the Bristol Housing Authority (BHA) plan to educate the public on the services and programs available for the aging population in the East Bay. Maria Ursini, BSC director, is very happy with the reception and growth of this initiative.
“Last year’s fair was very well received, and the return on investment was more folks got valuable information on services and programs. This event is for more than the aged. It is designed for adult children and caretakers, as so many times they are responsible for guidance.”
The venue for the fair this year is the BHA community room. Candy Pansa, BHA executive director said, “We are so pleased to host this terrific event. It is through efforts of the Bristol Senior Center that each day assists us in our mission to help our elderly residents age successfully in place.”
The event will be held on Friday, Sept. 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. inside the community room of the Benjamin Church Manor.
