Alexandria, VA – Senior Services of Alexandria has announced the “Senior Living in Alexandria” 2021-22 program schedule. All events are free, open to the public, and generally are held on the third Thursday of each month. When the COVID-19 pandemic broke out, SSA went virtual with its educational programming. We plan to keep the fall schedule virtual, hoping we can return to in-person events in 2022.

The schedule is a mix of serious and fun topics of interest to all older adults, and we hope you will join us for each of these programs. Here is a glimpse of the topics with dates and times. We will provide more information on speakers and venues on SSA’s website—www.seniorservicesalex.org—on Facebook, and in our monthly newsletters and other local outlets as we get closer to the dates. All virtual events will be on Zoom. Thank you for your continued support, and we hope to see you at one or more of these events.
