Aging Gayfully: The Class

posted Sep 5, 2017, 10:20 AM by Wayne Wieseler   [ updated Oct 3, 2017, 10:58 AM ]

Wednesdays: October 11 – December 20
Sebastopol Area Senior Center 2:30 – 4:30 p.m.

This fall Sebastopol Area Senior Center is hosting a free class designed to serve older LGBT adults thanks to grant funding from the LGBTQI Giving Circle, the creativity and commitment of our Sonoma County Adult and Aging Services, and the pioneering inclusiveness of the Santa Rosa Junior College, and the enthusiastic participation of Sonoma, Santa Rosa, and Sebastopol senior centers.

The class is part of the SRJC's Older Adults Program and is also being offered at senior centers in Sonoma and Santa Rosa.

Even if you participated in the eight-week Aging Together With Pride, you may still wish to join one of the classes for several reasons.

Providing enrollment warrants, classes will start again in mid-January 2018 and participants can re-enroll and continue being empowered to age with greater ease and enjoyment and continue making connections for as long as they wish.

If you have questions or concerns, come to the first class where the instructor will provide an overview before you will be asked to complete the SRJC registration process.

Gary “Buz” Hermes MA is co-facilitator of the Sonoma Valley LGBT Seniors Group and a former staff member of Spectrum’s Senior Outreach Program. He is currently a consultant on LGBT aging and can be reached at GaryDHermes@comcast.net or (707) 227-6935.
