Westminster-Canterbury on Chesapeake Bay happy to be involved with a new Virginia Beach TV Show featuring topics of interest to the Senior Community
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — June 3, 2018 The new show, “The Senior Source”, debuted this week. The City of Virginia Beach is piloting the television show featuring City programs and services for seniors on VBTV. “The Senior Source,” is hosted by local television personality Sandra Parker. Parker, who is currently the Public Relations Coordinator at Westminster-Canterbury on Chesapeake Bay is excited to be a part of the program. “My job offers me insights into the needs and interests of our seniors, and I’m looking forward to making this show an important and growing part of our community."
“The Senior Source” will provide viewers with information on an array of topics essential to those 55 and better and their families. More than one-fourth of the population in Virginia Beach is made up of seniors aged 55 and over. “The Senior Source” show and a new page on the VBgov.com website dedicated to seniors aims to inform and direct them to the City programs and resources to help them in their daily lives. The idea for the show came from long-time Virginia Beach resident and former Human Services Director Terry Jenkins, who saw the need to increase awareness of everything Virginia Beach has to offer its seniors. She now lives at Westminster-Canterbury where she teamed up with Parker, pitched the idea for the show, and the Communications Office signed on to produce it. “There’s a real need to help seniors learn what they can do to keep healthy, stay active, and take advantage of all the City has to offer,” said Jenkins.
The pilot episode of the show includes segments on the City’s tax relief programs for seniors, the Parks & Recreation Forever Young Senior Centers, and some free opportunities available through the public libraries. Future episodes will focus on other topics important to seniors such as health and wellness, recreational activities, support services and housing information. A new episode will debut on VBTV (Cox channel 48, Verizon channel 45) every other month on the first Sunday at 8:30 a.m., and will replay at additional times throughout the week. New episodes are set for Aug. 5, Oct. 7 and Dec. 2, 2018.
