Council on Aging Hosts Christmas on the River
Join us on Sunday, November 19th from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. as the Council on Aging (COA) hosts “Christmas on the River.”
This year’s theme will be “A Worldwide Journey of Wine Tasting & Gift Giving from the Heart.” This event is a delightful kickoff to the holiday season that includes a festival of wreaths and other decorations, wine tastings and fair trade items from Amistad, delicious food, and seasonal music.
All proceeds benefit Care Connection services. Care Connection is our crisis mitigation for seniors with emergency needs for which there is no other funding source. This year, because of Hurricane Irma, we anticipate a greater need than ever before to help displaced elders who are trying to return to their homes after flooding.
“It is absolutely crucial that we are able to provide these essential in-home services to our seniors,” Becky Yanni, Executive Director, said. “I can’t think of a better way to bring the community together around the holiday season to support such a worthy cause!”
Council on Aging is in search of donations of Christmas wreaths and small trees. These decorations should be made with silk or dried materials and delivered to COA on or before November 3rd.
