Beginning on Wednesday, Sept. 2 at noon, GP will host a monthly series of virtual events that address issues and topics of current interest to an aging population. We hope that these events will provide an opportunity for our WNC community to learn, raise questions, and give input to the program. The purpose of our first meeting will be to meet the organizers, to meet each other, and to learn more about available local support services. Future meetings will cover topics such as cutting out the confusion of the voting process, dating and isolation, health topics, COVID-19, and more.
Building on Rich Legacy & Network
Generation Plus builds on a legacy created by the WNC LGBTQ Elders and Land of Sky. In July, the WNC LGBTQ Elders Board of Directors voted to merge the organization into Blue Ridge Pride Center, Inc. We are pleased to welcome their leadership team and to help advance their great work.
Generation Plus also builds on a rich network of WNC partners. We are fortunate to have the AARP, Land of Sky, Council on Aging, and other partners join us in this exciting program. We believe that our community is strongest when we stand together. https://www.blueridgepride.org/
