C4C is collaborating with the Senior Alliance of Sisters to co-host the upcoming town hall: "Creating Age-Friendly Communities." The free event runs 2-4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 3, at Sisters Community Church. All are invited. An internationally recognized expert on issues related to aging and community-planning, Dr. Margaret Neal will lead the discussion. Dr. Neal is a professor of Urban Studies and director for the Institute on Aging at Portland State University. She will address why better planning for older populations is becoming increasingly important across the country; and the town hall will address how communities like Sisters Country could directly benefit. Also among the issues to be considered are specific infrastructures, services and social environments associated with developing thriving "age-friendly" communities.
Special thanks to the Central Oregon Health Council for providing food and refreshments and audio visual support for this gathering, and to Sisters Community Church for providing the venue.
