Back by popular demand, the Lake County Silver Foundation is hosting the 4th Annual Senior Summit, a one of a kind event honoring the contributions of Lake County Seniors and Elders.
The event takes place on April 4 from 9 am – 4 pm at the Robinson Rancheria Resort and Casino Event Center located at 1545 State Hwy 20 in Nice. It is free of charge for individuals 62+ years of age.
“The first Senior Summit was held here three years ago and we are pleased to again be a part of such a worthy cause,” said EJ Crandell, Tribal Chair of the Robinson Rancheria Band of Pomo Indians. “In our culture, we hold our elders in high esteem and the Senior Summit is a perfect way to pay tribute to all seniors for their contributions as teachers, mentors, and leaders,” he said.
Held last year at the Twin Pine Casino Event Center in Middletown, the event reached maximum capacity and some people who did not pre-register or arrived late could not be accommodated.
Event Organizer Olga Steele urged people to sign up by the deadline of March 27. “We also need those who register to arrive by 10 am, at which time we’ll begin registering walk-ins,” she said.
The event agenda includes a one of a kind Health & Wellness Fair, lunch, keynote speakers, Inspirational Senior Awards, music by Lake County’s David Neft, a variety of raffles throughout the day, stage demonstrations and more.
“This year, at the urging of several past participants, we’ve added three afternoon workshops,” said Steele. Seating is limited for the first come first served workshops at the time of pre-registration. The workshop are from 1:30 – 4 pm including 1) Watercolor painting with Diana Liebe; 2) Turning Memories to Legacies with Laurie Fisher and Loretta McCarthy; and 3) The Geology of Lake County with Lake County biologist & forester, Jim Steele.
Also the founder of the Lake County Silver Foundation, Jim Steele said, “We are dedicated to improving the quality of life for Lake County seniors by raising awareness and finding solutions to address the needs of this fast-growing demographic.”
“With the help of our Hospice partners and sponsors we have been able to continue holding the annual senior summit events,” Steele said.
