The air has become crisper and the sun is rising later in the morning. What a great time to get out and about more. What a hot summer we have had this year!
What do you do to enjoy the fall season? Is it watching your favorite football team? Going to the corn maze or pumpkin patch? Baking those yummy apple or pumpkin pies – or just eating them? Do you plant mums in your yard? Maybe it’s your grandkids football or soccer games? Or do you seem to visit more with your neighbors?
Fall is a wonderful time to continue to be active and to enjoy all that Colorado has for us.
During October and November there are a couple of local resource fairs for older adults that I’d like you to know about. Both are worth attending to help you find businesses, information and resources that you or a loved one may want to use sometime.
Check out: the Successful Aging Expo.
This free event is being held this year at the Longmont Museum, located at 400 Quail Rd., Longmont on Tuesday, October 8 from 9:30-2pm. There will be vendors and informative presentations focused on issues for older adults. They will offer an abundance of tips, advice, and the latest trends in health and nutrition, financial and retirement planning, real estate – from active adult communities to assisted living facilities – home care, lifestyle, leisure, fitness, and more. There will be a lineup of speakers and topics for you to choose from. TRU PACE will have a table there and we’d love to see you! Stop on by and visit with us!
Then in November:
The Aging in Altitude Expo will be held at the Boulder Jewish Community Center located at 6007 Oreg Ave., Boulder (at Arapahoe and Cherryvale Road) Saturday, November 2, from 9:30-2pm. This FREE event will also offer informative presentations. There will be vendors to assist you with homecare, fitness, assisted living facilities and other health needs.
