September 4, 2019 - Westchester County Executive George Latimer today announced that the County is presenting a free event for seniors and their families this month: the Seventh Annual Livable Communities Celebrate Aging Village Fair on Wednesday, September 18 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Mount Pleasant Community Center, 125 Lozza Drive, Valhalla.

All attendees can join StepWise Balance Fitness for an upbeat approach to fall prevention, which includes Tai Chi and Line Dancing presented by the Lower Hudson Valley Fall Prevention Network. For the first time at this event, the Lois Colombo Trio will perform live jazz.

Participants will continue to be able to experience Westchester County’s Telehealth Intervention Programs for Seniors (TIPS). Through TIPS, seniors can have their vital signs – blood pressure, pulse, blood oxygen level and weight – monitored for free and receive a TIPS Sheet with the results. Attendees will also receive a packet on DSPS programming.

As always, the Village Fair is an intergenerational event. To commemorate September as Intergeneration Month, there will be a family-friendly art project in collaboration with the Mount Pleasant Library.

September is also Older Workers Month. To recognize this distinction, the Urban League will hold a mini job fair for attendees.  In addition, participants will have the chance to stretch with the StretchLab and greet our friend Casey, a Certified Therapy Dog.  Other highlights will include exploring transportation options and raffles throughout the day. Limited space is still available for vendors.

This event is sponsored by Westchester County’s Department of Senior Programs and Services, the Westchester Public/Private Partnership for Aging Services, the award-winning Livable Communities Initiative and the Livable Communities Age-Friendly Community Sustainability Collaborative. Mount Pleasant Community Center is a co-sponsor.

This event is funded through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration on Aging, the New York State Office for the Aging and the Westchester County Department of Senior Programs and Services.

Registration is required for lunch, but walk-ins are welcome. To Sign up or for more information, please contact Jennifer Crawford at 914-813-6263 or .
