Aging gracefully with as much independence as possible was on the minds of many who attended the recent Senior Health and Living Seminar hosted by the Weaverville Lions Club. Healthy living is a reason for residing in Trinity County where one can enjoy beautiful scenery, the four seasons and quaint towns. Seniors living here stay in their own homes by choice and also by necessity as the county has one skilled nursing facility.

Attentiveness to community needs is a Weaverville Lions Club specialty. This club provides walkers, wheelchairs and other devices, as well as occasional deliveries to seniors and veterans. The seminar sought to expand the Lions’ role by connecting people serving seniors. The Senior Health and Living Seminar inspired participants to improve their lives through current services and to identify service needs. Networking was lively. Opportunities for collaborations to enhance current services were encouraged by Weaverville Lions President Scott Muir and by audience members.
