Mennonite Village's 14th Annual Older Americans' Day Celebration

18th Annual Older Americans' Day


We at Mennonite Village invite you to join us to celebrate men and women age 55 and greater and the many ways in which they enrich our communities. We organize this free, public event on our campus to bring attention to the issues that affect elder adults. Our theme is "Working Together for Strong, Healthy, and Supportive Communities," which speaks to opportunities we have to create better care, reinforce healthier lifestyles, and improve the overall quality of life.

The day's events, thanks to our generous sponsors, will be free of charge and open to people of all ages!

If you or your organization would like to sponsor or exhibit at the Active Living Fair, contact Whitney Olsen, 541-704-4247. You can download a Sponsor/Exhibitor Application Form here.
