Ocean County Press Release
TOMS RIVER – Ocean County seniors can access important information on services and programs during the Social Community Activities Network (SCAN)'s Lunch & Learn event scheduled to run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on March 15 at St. Andrew United Methodist Church, 1528 Church Road, here.
The event is free, but registration is required by March 8. To RSVP and for more information, contact SCAN at 732-542-1326.
Lunch will be provided by the culinary students of the Foodbank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties.
SCAN is New Jersey's premier provider of continuing education for adults, providing educational resources to its members and the community since 1988.
"We appreciate SCAN for highlighting Ocean County's Senior Services at their Lunch & Learn event," said Ocean County Freeholder Director Joseph H. Vicari, who also serves as Chairman to Senior Services. "This is a great opportunity for residents to go and see the types of resources available to them while also learning about information that could be of use to them in the future."
Representatives from Community Services, Inc. which provides Ocean County's home delivered meals and nutrition program, Caregiver Volunteers of Central Jersey, Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus, and New Jersey Natural Gas are also scheduled to attend.
The Lunch & Learn events are a way to make new friends and learn something new. In addition to the agencies that will be attending, the first of the 2017 series will focus on both the Power of Music on Your Brain, and Essential Documents Everyone Needs.
The Power of Music on Your Brain will be presented by Fran Pannella of Caregiver Volunteers of Central Jersey. Guests will participate in a conversation about music, brain fitness and overall well-being during an interactive journey through the decades with trivia and singing songs.
The discussion on essential documents will teach each guest how to identify essential documents and how to protect themselves and their assets. This is presented by Siobhan Connolly of Garden State Trust Company.
"All of these agencies can have a positive effect on the lives of our seniors," Vicari said. "Ocean County is home to the largest senior population in the state. This is just one of the many opportunities for seniors to access information and programs."
