Due to the uncertain timeline of the COVID-19 pandemic, and after thoughtful review and consideration, our Board of Directors has decided to cancel our Senior Power Day event, previously scheduled to take place on Wednesday, May 20, 2020. We apologize for any inconvenience, however, our primary concerns are health and safety, and avoiding the risk of spreading any illness to our family, friends, co- workers, and those we serve and the community at large.
If you have purchased a vendor table, you have three options: You may choose to forward your table reservation to Senior Power Day 2021, donate the dollars towards senior services and helping our home health aides in these unprecedented circumstances, or receive a refund, which will be given upon request.
If you are requesting a refund and your vendor table was paid for with a check, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for an ACH form, and you will be refunded via direct deposit to your account.
