10:00 AM

Everything Old Can Be New Again

Marilyn Daily-Blair, City of Salem | Center 50+

It doesn’t always require starting a brand new program to grab the eye of the new senior.  Many programs just need an update or a little dusting off to give it a whole new energy.  I will talk about some ways to update your traditional offerings,  selecting a new program that is cutting edge but, does not exclude your older patrons, a few easy steps to guarantee a successful new program launch, and a program idea or two that shows that EVERYTHING OLD CAN BE NEW AGAIN!

11:00 AM

Teen Programming

Cydny Fletcher, City of Lake Oswego

This ain’t your momma’s teen program. Working with the next generation can be scary and weird, suck it up! A vibrant, ever-evolving teen program can be the shining gem of your recreation offerings. Learn to work with teens in a recreation setting, create programs that last longer than a YouTube vid, and inspire the community.
