The event is sponsored by HFC services for the purpose of sharing a variety of information with seniors to enhance their quality of life and knowledge of resources available to them. There will be no sales pitch, only information. The guest speaker for the initial Senior Gathering will be Christian Merrit, and the topic will be “Habits of Happy People.”

The plan is to make the gathering a monthly series if the first event is well received.

The seating is limited to the first 70 attendees, so guests are encouraged to arrive soon after the doors open at 10:30 a.m. A tour of the Hagood Community Center will follow the presentation for those interested.
