A neighborhood community volunteer organization dedicated to helping senior citizens will hold a first-ever conference about the issues of citizens growing older in the Hudson Valley and what resources they need. Settled and Serving in Place (SSIP) groups from Kingston and Stone Ridge will host “Aging in Place…Thriving Through Community” on October 17, 2013, at the Esopus Town Hall on Route 9W in Port Ewen.
The conference, which will run from 9 AM to 3 PM, will include workshops and information to help seniors in local communities create and run their own SSIP group. The conference is free and open to all. Refreshments and lunch will be included for preregistered participants. To register in advance, email firstname.lastname@example.org, phone 845-331-0155, or mail SSIP 209, 191 Lapla Road, Kingston, NY 12401.
