Every May, Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia observes Older Americans Month, led by the Administration on Aging, part of the Administration for Community Living.
The 2018 theme, Engage at Every Age, emphasizes that you are never too old (or young) to take part in activities that can enrich your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. It also celebrates the many ways in which older adults make a difference in our communities.
This year, Senior Services is taking part in a few different activities to celebrate Older Americans Month.
Join Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia, Tidewater Arts Outreach, and
PrimePlus at Barbeque by Froggie's as we kick off Older Americans Month with drinks, food, and networking. You'll have a chance to interact with other area aging industry executives and businesses and learn more about local services and programs for older adults.
Senior Services sponsors a special concert for the Senior Community of Hampton Roads. Enjoy a look back in time with familiar light classics and favorite popular tunes. Join the musicians of the Virginia Symphony on a musical tour through the years with romantic strings, rousing marches, and toe-tapping favorites. We’ll even throw in a sing-along for the young at heart!
Accommodations for wheelchairs, scooters and other assistive devices will be available. If you have a question about accessibility, please ask! The Symphony welcomes your questions and look forward to welcoming you! Ushers will be on hand to greet you and your friends at this fun and memorable event! The concert will last approximately an hour and fifteen minutes.
