Lawrenceville United established a new program geared towards our growing senior population (anyone 60 and older). Our latest initiative, the Senior AdvantAGE Program, is an opportunity to effectively connect seniors to services and resources, other seniors, new residents and neighbors, and to businesses throughout the Lawrenceville area. Seniors can expect to take part in a needs assessment survey in order to determine what important issues must be addressed, trainings and workshops in order to become more informed members of the community, and social functions geared toward creating bonds with other residents in the area. The added benefits of the Program include a Senior AdvantAGE Guide with educational information, helpful tips, and a wide variety of Lawrenceville resources; Mini-Grants in order for seniors to be able to participate in fun activities; and a Senior AdvantAGE Discount Card for special discounts and incentives at local businesses.
AdvantAGE Card: Cards have been released. Make sure you have registered to get special incentives at your favorite Lawrenceville businesses.
As a first step in connecting long-time and new residents, we are hosting community socials in various areas of Lawrenceville. Please join us to get to know your neighbor! Fun events planned for all ages!
