The Botetourt County Sheriff’s Office Senior Focus Outreach Program has announced its next “Senior Social” event. The event is focused on bringing seniors and law enforcement together to provide a platform to showcase the many services available to the 50+ community.
This event will be held on Friday, July 21, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Fincastle Baptist Church, 7330 Roanoke Road, Fincastle. A free buffet style lunch will be served by the Botetourt County Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff Matt Ward will present an overview of preventative measures that will help seniors from becoming victims of crime. The sheriff will be followed by guest speaker Robbie Boyd, Director of Elder Rights and LTC Ombudsman with the Local Office on Aging during the lunch.
Seniors will be able to visit with many of the public and private services available. Services such as daily wellbeing checks, general health, and financial wellbeing will be on site. Governmental services will be on hand to answer questions and help seniors navigate their future needs. The event and all services are provided free of charge to the senior community.
“We remain committed to partnering with our senior community through our Senior Focus Outreach Program,” said Sheriff Ward. “Our Senior Social event allows us to network with our seniors, allows our seniors to network with each other, and it facilitates the opportunity for us to provide information to our senior communities in order to prevent them from becoming victims of crime”.
Sheriff Ward invites the senior community to join him at the Senior Social event Friday, July 21, at Fincastle Baptist Church at 11 a.m. For more information on the event, contact Andrea Mundy in the Services Division at 540-928-2233.
