“Garden Party”

Kenmore, NY (June 21st) – Celebrate the beginning of summer in the middle courtyard of Brookdale Kenmore with an evening of relaxed networking, appetizers and summertime beverages. Welcome the sun back to Buffalo!

Once a month, select member agencies of Network in Aging collaborate to develop a themed “Network with the Network” event.  These complimentary events are designed for members to meet regularly in a variety of settings and are also open to area professionals who want to learn more about the sponsoring organizations and the Network.

“The Network in Aging is a long standing, vital organization which has a special place in the community among professionals,” said Kristin Surdej, current Network in Aging President.  “Our organization has grown over the years and has become eclectic in its membership.  Members are from for profit and non for profit alike.  Membership includes those in the field of aging and others from organizations or businesses who serve those in the aging population”.
