at the Memphis Zoo
In conjunction with the Professional Network on Aging, WKNO-TV and WKNO-FM are excited to host the 2019 Senior Safari! The PNA Senior Safari is not only a special day for seniors and their families to take a leisurely walk through the zoo, but an awesome opportunity to get educational materials on Healthy living, financial planning, housing, insurance, caregiving options, hospice, and many other related services helpful to for seniors. This event provides free parking, free admission and free tram rides to seniors aged 55 and up. The event will be held on Wednesday, October 2, 2019, from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.
The Professional Network on Aging (PNA) comprises over 200 organizations and 400 individuals serving today’s and tomorrow’s seniors. The PNA provides an opportunity for those individuals serving seniors to come together for professional development and elevate the quality of life of those they serve. The PNA serves the mid-south area with members from Shelby, Fayette, McNairy and Tipton counties in Tennessee; Crittenden County in Arkansas and Desoto County in Mississippi. The goal of the Professional Network on Aging is to educate individuals on the issues that concern seniors in the community and to disseminate information and ideas to assist senior adults. The PNA is able to meet this goal by sponsoring events and workshops annually to provide an opportunity to network, have educational seminars and promote services available.
