There are no future dates scheduled for this event, yet.

What a great event! Thank you Richmond, Henrico, Chesterfield, Hanover, New Kent and Charles City, Goochland and Powhatan you came out by the hundreds.

Our attendees were very excited about Home Safety, Personal Safety and Emergency Preparedness. Our event sponsor, Dominion Energy was there with a great energy saving bag for each attendees. CareMore and Anthem Health Keepers took pictures of our attendees which they could take home. Senior Connections, our Agency on Aging, provided transportatioin to and from our parking lots all day long. Almost 400 people joined us for our 3rd Annual Senior Safety Day, presented by Senior Center of Greater Richmond, Richmond's First Baptist Church and the Office of the Attorney General, Mark Herring.

Thank you to our participants for showing us how much you care about Home Safety, to our vendors and sponsors for you support and funding and to our presenters for giving us real information and resources on your subject matter.

Our 3rd Annual Senior Safety Day on July 20th will be held at Richmond's First Baptist Church (Monument and Boulevard.) This event is a partnership between our Senior Center, the Office of the Attorney General Mark Herring and First Baptist.

Last year we had more than 300 attendees attending workshops, winning prizes, eating a great lunch and meeting people with resources and services for seniors. This year, we will introduce some new topics, lots of new sponsors, vendors and resources and a number of new seniors from Richmond and surrounding counties. Our EVENT sponsor will be Dominion Energy Share. We will be announcing other sponsors and vendors later in June and on our website.

At the event we will hear a lot about Living Safely in Our Homes. Each participant will choose workshops or presentations of their choice for the event from list including: Emergency Planning, Safeguards Against Identity Theft, Driving Safely, Reducing Clutter, Community & Regional Resources, Protecting Your Electronic Devices, and more. Since we expect seniors of all ages, some working, some retired and most enjoying their "Senior Hood" to the fullest, we will be providing lunch, lots of vendors, resources and giving you opportunities to make some new connections. Join us for ideas, challenges, prizes and more.
