100+ attend Lakeland’s School for Seniors event
More than 100 people attended the recent seventh annual School for Seniors hosted by Lakeland University and the City of Neenah’s Committee on Aging.
The event provides senior citizens and their supporters with a morning of enrichment and learning as participants discuss timely and engaging topics with local experts.
This year’s event featured presentations on financial scams targeting retirees, the health benefits of laughter and a session from Lakeland’s Andrew Damp on emerging AI technologies.
Participants also enjoyed a resource fair with representatives from over a dozen local organizations, including the Fox Cities YMCA, Fox Valley Memory Project, Us Too Fox Cities and the Winnebago County Health Department.
Mayor Jane Lang of Neenah was on hand to welcome attendees and answer questions about local issues.
School for Seniors is a program developed by Lakeland Vice President for Academic Affairs Joshua Kutney, who also chairs Neenah’s Committee on Aging, and Lakeland alumnus, Robert Suess.
