Cynthia Schuetz: Falls Prevention Coalition event a success

The Falls Prevention Coalition’s eighth annual Community Event drew 275 people, our largest number of attendees ever.

Many individuals and organizations contributed to its success. Special “thank yous” to: The Seventh-day Adventist Church congregation and staff for allowing use of their church campus and supporting our work; Emily’s Cake & Catering; the Food Bank guys for setting up; The Union; KNCO broadcasters for interview time; and the fabulous RSVP staff and volunteers for the many things they did to help with organizational details.

A grateful nod to Atria Grass Valley, Cascades of Grass Valley and Eskaton Village for their on-going support. Also, we are excited to have recently become a program of the Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Foundation: thank you so much for taking us under your wing! Finally, a big shout-out to the 29 vendors that comprised the resource fair.

Thank you for your support — and the door prizes!

Cynthia Schuetz, Coordinator
