The Sandler Family Campus will be bustling with joy and activity catering to the vibrant senior community with three events on Wednesday, May 29.

The day will begin with the Senior Health and Fitness Day Fair, inviting active adults aged 55 + to join the nationwide celebration of aging Americans staying healthy and fit. With more than 100,000 seniors participating across the U.S., this event promises to be both informative and engaging.

Organized by the Simon Family JCC, the fair will feature vendors from around Tidewater such as The Talbot on Granby, Sentara Optima Health, and many others, offering insights and resources.

A special session, Honest Aging with Rosanne M. Leipzig, MD, an expert in evidence-based geriatrics, will provide guidance on navigating the second half of life, addressing physical, psychological, functional, and emotional aspects of aging with candor, humor, and empathy. Thanks to the generous support of the Bartel Family, in honor of their parents and grandparents, Dolores and Alan Bartel, various accessibility accommodations are available for this program. Request them during registration.

Later that afternoon, the festivities continue with the Senior Prom, offering an opportunity for seniors to relive cherished moments and create new memories. Whether dancing ‘the night away’ or simply enjoying the company of friends, the Senior Prom promises to be a delightful affair, highlighting the spirit of community at the Simon Family JCC.
