As part of May’s Seniors Awareness Month, come to EPPIA’s 4th Annual Senior Resource Fair! If you have never attended this event before now is a great opportunity to learn about a variety of resources that are available in our community to help seniors and their families. If you have attended in the past, join us again for vendor visits, learn what’s new in the senior community, meet face-to-face with 40 vendors in the vendor exhibit area, and enjoy refreshments. Last but not least, come to hear our acclaimed key-note speaker, Richard Leider!

We are especially excited to announce that Richard Leider, an internationally known speaker and author, is our key-note speaker! His topic is entitled The Power of Purposeful Aging. We all question our life’s purpose at various stages in our lives, and this is especially relevant to seniors who are no longer raising a family, working, and may have had to curtail some activities and hobbies due to health or other reasons. What is a way forward to a purpose-filled life as we age and our lives change?

A bit more about the vendor exhibits: This part of the Resource Fair enables attendees to meet vendors from a variety of businesses that serve Eden Prairie seniors. It is also a chance to ask questions and get information for you, friends, and family members. Vendors include representatives from senior housing communities, in-home health services, insurance, investments, realtors, move companies, auction companies, and more. You can learn how to get involved in the Eden Prairie Senior Center, which is a hub of resources, activity, and education and promotes a sense of involvement, fitness, fun and friendship.

This event is made possible through the combined efforts of the City of Eden Prairie and EPPIA. Special thanks go to Pax Christi, who provides the space for this event, and to Nothing Bundt Cakes who donates a portion of their delicious cakes for the reception. Please tell your friends and join us for a fun, informative and inspiring afternoon!
