Community members ages 9 to 99 are encouraged to attend, as Ely and Hibbing communities launch AGE to age: bringing generations together through a series of meetings to gather input and form action plans! AGE to age joins young people with older adults 55+, and the generations in between, to get to know each other and work together to make Ely a better place to grow up and grow older. Make new friends and help your community.

Join in at any point to help your community be a more welcoming place for all ages, create a vision for your community, brainstorm project ideas, undertake project planning, and move to action!
