Forsyth County’s Social Scene for Active Seniors – Julie Gruen on Eugeria! Radio

Jan 30, 2015

Growing up in Southwest Florida, Julie Gruen studied English at Western Carolina University, then went on to earn a Masters in Hospitality at the University of Central Florida. After graduating, she moved to South Carolina to start her career.  When her family moved to Cumming, Georgia, she started visiting, and fell in love with the area.  She left her job, and moved to Georgia with no other agenda that to build her life in Forsyth County.  As she began looking for a new career opportunity, she knew that she wanted to have an impact on people’s lives.  Forsyth County Senior Services was a perfect fit.  Today, she is the Senior Services Team Leader in charge of Special Events.

Forsyth County Senior Services is a focal point for seniors in Forsyth County that is designed to enhance their independence and develop community.  In addition to 3 senior centers, Forsyth County Senior Service provides home delivered meals for more than 200 people each day.  For more active seniors, a wide variety of trips and events are available at low, or no, cost.

The next big event is the 13th Annual Senior Expo scheduled on February 21, from 10a to 1p at the Forsyth Conference Center.  Admission is free.  Last year more than 1500 people attended this event.  There will be free health screenings, free food, and more than 90 organizations that serve the Forsyth County senior community.  Don’t miss this terrific event!
