General Senior Events Tips
Seniors are more active nowadays then ever, so many have more penciled in social calendars then teens. Planning a senior event requires some organization. Keep these tips in mind when hosting an event for seniors.
Encourage social interactive by inviting the community to take part in the event. Do so, by marketing to seniors in the community via the media, posters displayed in places frequented by seniors, a Web site, or phone calls.
Ask for volunteers to help organize and carry out the party planning. For instance, one might need ushers, servers, photographers, or decorators.
Give businesses the opportunity to get involved through sponsorships and donations. Discuss possible ways they can help, such as providing gift bags, food or entertainment.
Create a lasting memory for the attendees with complimentary photographs or party favors.
Tap into seniors' brains for party planning ideas. Take suggestions for possible themes, activities, and locations. Still looking for ideas? Plan a walk to benefit an organization, go on a group hike or walk, compete in senior olympics, host a talent show, perform in a play or musical, play sports, or attend a dance.
