Empowering Seniors Throughout the Year

Commissioner Gary Fickes created Empowering Seniors to fill a need. This one-day event grew from 300 attendees in 2009 to 3000 in 2019. In consideration of health and safety, Empowering Seniors has evolved from a one-day event to several smaller yet more focused Wellness Seminars and other outreach initiatives for area seniors and caregivers. We were also inspired to transform our website to serve you year-round, allowing us to provide you with valuable information, games, and resources, all available on the website.
