The third annual The Best Is Yet To Be forum, sponsored by Diablo Valley Foundation for the Aging, will be held Feb. 18 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Heather Farm Community Center, 301 N. San Carlos Drive in Walnut Creek.
The forum will examine topics for seniors ranging from healthy vision and balance in life to making the best of the remaining years. Community theater veteran Bill Oakley will portray comedian and author George Burns. A free senior information fair featuring 16 exhibitors will be held next door to the forum. Proceeds from the event benefit the Walnut Creek Seniors Club.
“We want to provide seniors and their adult children information as well as some entertainment that will enrich their lives,” said the foundation’s executive director, Robert Kain.
Speakers include Judy Weitzner, a County Office on Aging retiree and producer of the “Senior Information Journal” TV show, who will suggest ideas for making the best of the years remaining. Fredette Pardini, retired County Medical Center volunteer services director, will discuss achieving a balanced life. Alexandria Kent will describe the Civic Ventures “Purpose Prize.” Dr. Roderick Keener will describe recent optometry progress leading to healthier vision. And former columnist Ted Fuller will tell how memoir writing leads to benefits for the writer.
The $25 price of admission includes lunch. Tickets at the door cost $30. To register, visit www.dv-fa.org or call 925-945-8040.
