Neptune Society of Northern California joins the celebration of seniors in the 12th Annual Healthy Living Festival to be held in the Oakland Zoo on Thursday, September 17, 2015.

This event is presented by United Seniors of Oakland and Alameda County (USOAC). USOAC is a grassroots inter-generational organization dedicated to empowering older adults to address the issues that affect their quality of life. As a community based organization, USOAC has fought for the rights of older adults throughout Alameda County for more than 24 years. Headed by Nate Miley, USOAC has over 7,000 members, including individuals, chapter, and affiliates throughout the entire county.

Pre-registration is required for the event, with a free entrance to the zoo, free lunches, free parking for members, and $8.00 parking for non-members. The event will be held from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm. For further inquiries, please contact Patricia Nance at 510-729-0852. The Oakland Zoo is located at 9777 Golf Links Road, Oakland, CA 94605.

Some of the highlights of the 12th Annual Healthy Living Festival involve resource information and interactive activity for older adults. Programs include Line Dancing, Tai Chi, Zumba, Bay Area Blues Band Society, and more. There are 100 exhibitors with Neptune Society of Northern California among them. Faviola Rodas and Leatta Poston will answer cremation questions and provide a gift basket raffle.

“This year,” said Patricia Nance, Administrative Assistant of the USOAC, “we will have on the grounds self-contained Health Screening Vans from community providers such as Tiburico Vasquez, Healthy Communities and Aids Project of the East Bay and Walgreens.”

Volunteers will help serve nutritious lunches to adults sixty and older who participate in the event. Moreover, the USOAC encourages seniors to bring unwanted or expired medicines for the Medication Take Back program to be properly disposed of by East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) staff.

The USOAC defines its goals as educating and assessing seniors regarding their risk factors for healthy living, improving wellness through physical activity and improving their quality of life by increasing health and fostering successful aging with events such as this annual festival.

In line with these goals, the Neptune Society of Northern California offers information on final arrangement options such as pre-planning cremation or memorialization services. The Neptune Society of Northern California has provided a simple and affordable option for more than 125,000 Californians who prefer cremation as the dignified and ecologically responsible alternative to traditional final arrangements. The Neptune Society of Northern California has 12 convenient locations in California.

The Neptune Society of Northern California offers pre-need services, cremation urns and products, as well as cremation memorialization services. California has a wealth of options when it comes to choosing how or where to celebrate our life –  whether it be in San Francisco Columbarium, an ocean scattering, a garden, or a house of worship.
