Professional Development Day & 60th Anniversary was a Success!

Friday, June 10th at the  Sparrows Point Country Club  Tom Endres from n4a – (The aging network volunteer collaborative resource center) spoke to the 40 plus participants about the benefits, challenges, and innovative ways of using the 6000 people who retire each day in this country. We also had a fantastic afternoon session as we held an open forum asking what challenges some people had with their programs. It was a great learning experience for all who attended.
