Connect Wake Forest begins July 14

The four-week program is designed to connect 55+ age people to learn about history and the growth of Wake Forest

The Wake Forest Area Chamber Foundation is sponsoring a new initiative which has been created specifically for area residents aged 55+. Connect Wake Forest is a four-week program designed to connect residents with like-minded peers, while they learn about the history and growth of Wake Forest, discover ways to get involved in the town, and become more civically aware. At the end of the program, participants will be given opportunities to volunteer with existing organizations and launch new community initiatives. Connect Wake Forest is open to both residents and non-residents of Wake Forest. Applications are being accepted now.

The program kicks off on Wednesday, July 14 at the Wake Forest Historical Museum. The day’s topic will be the history of Wake Forest. Subsequent programs feature town government, local businesses, and community involvement. During each session, participants will be introduced to community and business leaders. Every session includes lunch and facilitated conversation on how to get involved in the Town of Wake Forest.

The cost is $250 per person and includes all materials and meals. Scholarships are available. To apply, or for a complete schedule and detailed information, visit: wakeforestfoundation.org.Questions may be directed to Ann Welton, Wake Forest Area Chamber, 919-556-1519 or ann@wakeforestchamber.org.

“It’s exciting to see so many new residents in Wake Forest,” said Ann Welton, Chamber president. “Many active adults have moved here to be closer to grown children and grandchildren. We know they’re looking for ways to make Wake Forest feel like home. This is an opportunity to connect to each other while they learn all about our charming town. It’s going to be a lot of fun!”
