SOS Remembrance Lunch 2013

On May 7, 2014 the Senior Outreach Services held a Volunteer Remembrance Luncheon to honor those volunteers who passed away remembering the legacy they left behind, while also recognizing the volunteers who continue to support vulnerable elders in the community. As guests arrived at the Siena Hotel Spa Casino, they were greeted with a lovely harp recital by Reno's own Beverly Colgen. The charming music set the tone for the celebration as guests took their seats for a delicious catered lunch courtesy of the Sienna. You can find more photos HERE


SOS Celebrates Older Americans Month

On May 30, 2014, Senior Outreach Services held their innagural Musical Fantasy event in honor of Older Americans Month. The free, one-hour concert included performances from Kenn Pettiford (jazz piano), Dr. Peter Reed (guitar), and Dolores Ward who performed a traditional Polynesian dance. Held in the Laxalt Auditorium, the concert attracted nearly 100 older adults to enjoy a variety of musical genres including jazz, the blues, and folk. Throughout the performance, members of the audience were encouraged to dance and sing along with the songs they knew and loved.

Free parking was provided, courtesy of the Reno Police Department, in the metered city lot on the east side (right side as you face the front) of the Nelson Building, 401 W. 2nd St., Reno.
