When legislators return to St. Paul next week from their Easter/Passover break, they will have just three weeks left in the regular legislative session. All session long, members from Aging Services of Minnesota, have helped make seniors a priority at the capitol, but they need your help to make the biggest impression at the capitol in these last few weeks. That is why we are asking you to come help us rally in support of older adult services on Tuesday, May 3, 10 – 10:45 a.m. on the front steps of the State Capitol (the event will be moved to the Capitol Rotunda in the event of rain).
The event will feature senior music group Alive and Kickin’ and is a joint effort sponsored by the Long-Term Care Imperative, Seniors and Workers for Quality Care, AARP Minnesota, and the Minnesota Leadership Council on Aging.
Our goal is to have 1,000 supporters attend the event, and we need your help to reach this goal. Please tell your staff, volunteers, family members, board members and residents to join us. We also ask that you try to wear an orange shirt so that we can have a strong visual impact on this day.
More information will be posted in the next week with more details on the event. As Aging Services of Minnesota passes it on to us, we will pass it on to you here.
We hope to see you there!
