A set of Watertown organizations presents “Shaping an Age-Friendly Community for All Ages” at the Watertown Free Public Library on Tuesday, Nov. 17 from 7-9 p.m.
Kara Cohen of AARP will speak about creating well-designed, livable communities than help sustain economic growth and make for happier, healthier residents – of all ages. Hear about the City of Boston, City of Salem, Berkshire County, and New Bedford and their progress since they officially became members of the AARP and World Health Organization (WHO) Network of Age-Friendly Communities.
The event is presented by Watertown Community Foundation, WatertownTogether,
and the Marshall Home Fund.
Join neighbors, friends, and community leaders to learn more about Watertown’s efforts to become one of the WHO Network of Age-Friendly Communities.
Discuss how Watertown can better serve all of its residents. Be part of the conversation about how to provide better housing and transportation options, access to key services, more walkable streets, recreational activities, and much more.
The free event will be at the Watertown Library’s Watertown Savings Bank Room. The library is accessible, and light refreshments will be served.
