On September 22nd, 2017 the first Matter of Balance class sponsored and presented by The Seniors Council and the Companion for Life Project graduated. We were very fortunate to have Santa Cruz councilperson, Richelle Noroyan, present us with a Mayoral Proclamation for our work in helping older adults remain active and healthy in our community. Special thanks to The Seniors Council board member, Creighton Mendivil, for his appearance. It was a wonderful experience and we can't wait for the next class.
Gus Ceballos - Program Director
We would like to thank the City of Santa Cruz and Mayor Cynthia Chase for recognizing the efforts of The Seniors Council and the Companion for Life Project on this day, September 22nd, 2017 - the 10th Annual Falls Prevention Awareness Day.
By presenting the Matter of Balance program free of charge to the community, The Seniors Council and the Companion for Life Project strive to educate older adults on how to manage falls and the proactive measures they can take to remain vital and healthy contributors to our community.
Thank you for the proclamation. It is a great honor.
