Celebrate Seniors

Bethel Lutheran Church, Gurnee, IL

We are so thankful for all of the volunteers who made the Celebrate Seniors Festival a success. Those who picked up seniors to attend, the loaned bus, those who decorated the event space and those who managed the food. And thanks goes to our exhibitors who gave up a Sunday afternoon to share their information with our seniors.

Special thanks goes to our hosts at Bethel Lutheran Church in Gurnee. Pastor Ben Squires was an amazing help during the event and Ben Sanders was great helping to assure that we would get all of the ammendities that we needed. Thanks to Jodi Ryczek from Center Club who lead the chair exercises, and the Groupo Folklarico Itzayan for their beautiful dance and singing. And thanks to Eliza Lynn who was our MC and for sharing her beautiful singing.

By all indicators a good time was had by all! There were over 120 seniors who were able to join us at the Festival. We look forward to our next festival in 2025 and Bethel has invited us back! So mark your 2025 calendars for May 4th.
