The Lourie Center will host our annual Fall Festival on Friday, October 28 and we want you to be a part of the fun! The Lourie Center will host a variety of senior services and businesses to represent at the festival and they can’t wait to meet you! The 2022 theme is “A Motown Morning”.  For the safety of the community, we will be encouraging a mask-optional, socially distant format, but the Lourie Center Fall Festival will once again be an indoor experience. Tables and displays and will be set up distributing information and goodies from our vendors.

This is free event for the public to attend. Festival guests will enjoy entertaining Motown music and performances, health and wellness resources and services, festive décor, and door prizes.

The first 150 seniors to attend will receive a free box lunch to take, PLUS we will be calling for door prize gift cards and prizes all morning!
