We are proud to announce the inauguration of our Helping Seniors (Small Grant) program. The program is intended to assist any private citizen or organization (student, civic, etc.) who wishes to assist an individual or group of seniors by completing a project that could improve their living conditions or quality of life. Examples might include building a handicap ramp at the private home of a senior; adding senior-friendly activity equipment at a local park; developing and provisioning an activity program for a senior living facility; repairing/improving in-home accessibility or outdoor safety at a home.

Age Well Forsyth Saluted America and her armed forces at the Cumming Playhouse over two weekends performing 8 shows in late March.
It was a great show drawing large crowds. The two act show consisted of song and dance from eras throughout America's history. The first act covered The Revolutionary War up until War World II. The second act covered up until present day America.
Age Well Forsyth had a great guest Elvis impersonator from Pigeon Forge Tennessee, Doug Thompson. He was a fan favorite among the crowds preforming many of Elvis' greatest hits.
It was truly a great production with all areas of the armed forces honored. Thanks to everyone who attended and please check our website and Facebook page for any upcoming events if you missed this one!
