Senior Adults Growing and Exploring
SAGESofBG is a group of seniors 50+ that we started in 2017. Initially, most members were from the greater Buffalo Grove, IL area. But membership has expanded to other states including TX, AZ, TN and NY. We also have an international member from Toronto, Canada as well.
At the beginning we met in person twice monthly to discuss issues and share information and knowledge about retirement, listen to interesting speakers, plan social gatherings and volunteer events, etc. We also frequently met for social and volunteer events. Thanks to our sponsors, we were able to offer our meetings and refreshments free to all seniors.
In-person meetings were suspended after March 12th, 2020 when we were required to shelter in place by our Governor. On March 15th, we started publishing information and updates about COVID-19 on our website blog. We also highlight activities and events, local civic and governmental resources and happenings, offer music and funny videos to make all visitors laugh. Important announcements are shared.
In April the group started meeting on Thursdays at 10:00 AM for weekly Zoom meetings. We have discussions, presentations and guest speakers. Attendance is generally around 20 SAGES. Since August 2021 we meet on the first and third Thursdays in anticipation of going back to face-to-face (or hybrid) meetings based on our original schedule.
