The Lancaster County Office of Aging invites Lancaster County’s older adults to join us in commemorating Older Americans Month.

This year’s theme for the month of May is “Engage at Every Age,” and we have some exciting ways for seniors to be engaged!

Join us as we celebrate our 30th Annual Senior Games during the week of May 7-11. This year’s Senior Games has more than 45 different events held at Spooky Nook Sports and several other locations. This fun event draws more than 800 participants and 200 volunteers.

We are also offering free technology classes to Lancaster County residents aged 55 and older at several locations in the county. These interactive classes are two hours long, and each class focuses on a different topic.

Whether you consider yourself a beginner or an advanced “techie,” we’re sure you’ll enjoy the class. Participants can attend one class or all of them.
