1 pm. Sept 30 – It’s “Celebration” Time” for PBA’s 2nd Birthday. You’ll learn how to Write Terrific Tribute Poems for International Seniors
Day. Sign up to join us here

Have you ever written a tribute poem – a poem that elevates, celebrates, or
cherishes a person or event? Charlotte ‘Sista ‘C Ferrell, author of the life-shifting poetry books, From Pillows to Pillars and Heart Balm-Just for You will help you #Re-Imagine your words into potent poetic treasures.

Three things always happen at Charlotte’s Tribute Poetry workshops: 1) someone writes their first-ever poem; 2) someone decides to make their poem a special gift; 3) someone reads their poem to others.

Five of the poems created on Sept. 30 will be presented Friday, Oct. 1 during the International Day of Older Persons, and Seniors Week, program at the 411 SENIOR CENTER, Vancouver, BC.

Bring a party hat! Powered by Age is also celebrating its 2nd birthday as a weekly senior-led podcast via Zoom. As part of the Culture Days theme, we will re-Imagine some of the delightful experiences we’ve had since our 2019 start-up, onsite at the 411 Senior Center Society in Vancouver.

We’re a flexible family. Tuesday, Sept. 30 is also a day for these important observations. Our podcast will extend to 2:15 pm.
