In brief: Fair for seniors is Friday

Sat., April 19, 2014

SPOKANE VALLEY – The Senior Empowerment Resource Fair is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday at CenterPlace Regional Event Center in Spokane Valley.

“The goal of the event is to inform seniors and their families about the services and resources that are available in Spokane Valley and regionwide,” said Spokane Valley Senior Specialist Karen Clark-Parson, who noted that the senior center is often the first contact point when looking for senior-focused housing, financial, and grief counseling services.

This year’s free fair will feature 54 vendors. The event center is at 2426 N. Discovery Place.

SPOKANE VALLEY – The Spokane chapter of Washington State Quilters will present speaker Louisa Smith during its meeting Thursday. Smith will share some of her techniques and speak on the topic, “One Patch Plus.”
