Seniors on the Go!
In early 2009, all the key senior program providers in and around Sterling were invited to have a dialogue about collaboration. By the end of the process, a partnership was formed between Greenville County Recreation District, Senior Action (local senior advocacy organization), and Bon Secours St. Francis Health System to have a main site for seniors in Sterling and to fund a senior coordinator position to oversee the programming. The seniors who now attend are participants in a vibrant program that enriches their bodies, minds, and spirit!
The "seasoned citizens" named the program themselves: Seniors on the Go!
It is currently one of the only programs in Greenville County that operates 5 days a week, even during the summer! This is not to be a typical "program" but a series of experiences and relationships between the seniors and all who engage with them. Their wisdom, stories, and empowerment are the foundation of whatever is created!
