ABOUT THE SENIOR EVENTS COMMITTEE AND CALENDAR
WKU Aging, AARP and the City of Bowling Green are collaborating in the "Age-Friendly Bowling Green" initiative as part of the World Health Organization's Age-Friendly Cities Project. This initiative seeks to make Bowling Green a better place to grow older by asking individuals, groups, and businesses in the community how policies and practices can be changed to make the city even more inclusive of older adults and more sensitive to their needs.
While many people had commented on all that our city has to offer seniors, they also often commented that they did not hear about many of these opportunities until after they had happened! "Community Conversations" led to a group of area seniors creating a committee, with the assistance and support of WKU Aging, and began compiling a calendar of events for seniors and distributing at Kroger's Senior Discount Days. The events included on the calendar cater to a variety of interests and needs, including everything from computer classes, book discussion groups, BINGO, informational meetings, free medical screenings, senior exercise programs and many other events geared toward seniors.
The monthly calendar can now be found here on WKU Aging's website. See below for the link to the current calendar. Thanks to the sponsorship of Home Instead Senior Care, we also offer a monthly article in SOKY Happenings Magazine which includes features, events, organizations and activities that help make Bowling Green a "Forbes Favorite," as well as a great place for senior living!
