In celebration of the season, participants will paint pumpkins and the top three works of art will be displayed in the Olathe, Overland Park, and Roeland Park 50 Plus centers. To finish the day, participants will play Apple Cider Bingo at the Matt Ross Community Center, 8101 Marty, Overland Park.
There is a small fee for bingo, but the other activities are free. Reservations are required and can be obtained by calling (913) 642-6410.
The International Council on Active Aging initiated Active Aging Week in 2003 as a national observance meant to raise awareness of the benefits of physical activity and proper nutrition for older adults.
