Empowering Seniors 2014 to be held October 3

Empowering SeniorsEmpowering Seniors, a health and lifestyle expo for people over the age of 50, will take place for the sixth year in a row on Friday, October 3. Presented by Tarrant County Commissioner Gary Fickes, the event will be hosted at First Baptist Church Euless West Campus from 8:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. This is an ideal opportunity for seniors and caregivers to gain valuable information about the needs of older adults.

The registration fee for joining the Southlake seniors group is $3 and members may sign up at the Senior Activity Center, located at 307 Parkwood Drive in Southlake.
