I want to invite local readers in Seattle to an outstanding event next week celebrating life through music and song with the Northwest Center for Creative Aging (NWCCA).
Celebrating life and aging through song may remind you of Dr. Bill Thomas’ Second Tour! That’s no coincidence as the NWCCA was our Seattle sponsor and next week’s event features our Seattle local speaker, Gloria Burgess, an award-winning performer, poet and storyteller.
Many Second Wind participants were surprised by the power of the music in the second act of the performance. NWCCA captures the reason behind this perfectly in their Nov. 13 event:
Singing together creates community, enhances our spiritual, emotional, and physical wellbeing and expresses the joy of being alive.
Click on the flyer below to register, and if you don’t live in Seattle I still recommend visiting NWCCA and donating to their cause, they are one of the most outstanding pro-aging organizations in the country.
I can say that because I got to work directly with nearly three dozen local organizations and advocates nationwide who are doing amazing things in their communities that are changing aging.
I don’t want to short-change our national sponsors, who were indispensable, but local sponsors like NWCCA formed the backbone of the Tour and we never would have pulled it off without them.
We’re currently laying the groundwork for a 2015 tour that will build off the momentum of Second Wind. Dr. Bill Thomas is working on building even bigger impact through both the arts and community engagement, so stay tuned for more details!
