Mt. Clemens, MI - The Macomb County Office of Senior Services and Office of the County Executive, are proud to host the 32nd annual Senior Fun Festival on Friday, September 29 from 9 a.m. to Noon.
The festival will be held at the Lorenzo Cultural Center at Macomb Community College on Garfield and Hall Road. Admission is free.
“The Senior Fun Fest is a huge event in our community,” said Sheila Cote, director of Senior Services. “Caregivers and seniors will have access to information from senior care providers throughout the County. As our population ages, there is a greater need for resources.”
Planned activities include:
- Vendor tables with information for seniors and caregivers
- Live entertainment
- Balloon artists
- Photo booth
- Photos with local celebrities, including “Roary” the Detroit Lions mascot
- Refreshments sponsored by Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel
Executive Hackel will once again serve as the emcee for the event.
“We look forward to the Senior Fun Fest every year,” he said. “This event illustrates our county’s commitment to engaging and caring for seniors. We welcome all seniors across our community to come and explore the trusted programs and partners dedicated to helping them each day here in Macomb.”
Notable vendors will be on site, including the Area Agency on Aging 1B, the Macomb County Health Department and the Detroit Institute of Arts. These organizations will have experts who can provide resources and information about programming and support services available for seniors and caregivers.
“Our goal is to help Macomb County residents age in place,” said Nicole Urban, program manager for Senior Services. “So often having just one or two services can make an impact for a senior to remain in their own home. Services such as Meals on Wheels, home care or transportation services, can make a world of difference for both the senior and their caregiver.”
Senior Fun Fest is made possible through the support of several sponsors, including: Heiritage Law, Wilfinger Health & Life, American House East 1, East 2, Sterling Woods and Sterling Meadows, How to Help Mom, Relevar Home Care/ Alivity Care Advocates, Henry Ford Health, and Macomb County Veteran Services.
