This fall, Encore Experiences senior center, in Harleysville, is hosting its first Holistic and Healing Expo, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., October 8, at 312 Alumni Avenue, in Harleysville. Holistic health and wellness vendors are invited to register for a table at this new community event.
The goal of the expo, says Site and Program Director Patty Roxberry, is to introduce holistic living and wellness avenues to area senior citizens, as well as to the community. Encore Experiences currently offers its members a wide variety of holistic health and wellness services, including tai chi, yoga, acupuncture and massage therapy, and is excited to open its doors to additional services designed to promote overall health and enrich the lives of participants of any age. “Our members enjoy it!” says Roxberry, commenting on the center’s wellness programs and classes.
Operated by Greater Harleysville and North Penn Senior Services, Encore Experiences has, since 1975, provided access to programs and resources that help older adults live independently and remain active. Programs and activities are specifically designed to benefit community residents ages 55 or above. “Our hope is to invite the community to our lovely center,” says Roxberry. “We are one of Harleysville’s best-kept secrets.”
Ticket cost: $7 suggested donation goes towards supporting Encore’s programming. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Table cost: $40. For more information and to register for a table, contact Patty at 215-256-6900, email Info@EncoreExperiences.org or visit Ghnpss.org/encore_experience.
