Plano West Rotary Club (PWRC) supported our senior neighbors on the weekend of Oct. 15-16 with a project that offered resources for healthy living in Plano.
In partnership with the City of Plano, The Wellness Center for Older Adults at the Sam Johnson Recreation Center For Adults 50+ held its first Senior Resource Fair in October. The fair offered COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters, as well as information on health, wellness, estate planning and more.
PWRC volunteers assisted with setting up and tearing down the event, as well as additional support during the fair. This was of great help to the event organizers as they would not have had enough paid staff to successfully run the resource fair.
Our club’s 18 volunteers served a total of 79 service hours. Led by project manager Shannon Modlin, Rotarians Zain Kalson, Isabel Segovia, Nathan Tay, James Thomas, Glen Thornton and Michelle Thornton served alongside community volunteers.
Hundreds of seniors attended the event, hopefully receiving information and services that will lead them to live healthier and longer here in our city.
