Senior Education Seminar Series 2023
Ellen Osmundson is a Senior Real Estate Specialist who is committed to serving the senior members of the Central
Costa County, especially in Walnut Creek where she calls home for more than thirty years. Ellen has a special appreciation for seniors not only for their inspiration and wisdom, it is, more importantly, because of their uncompromised
contributions to the society during their younger years. We and the younger generations are the beneficiaries of their
hard work. It is time for us to return the efforts while the elders are enjoying life in their revered years.
I believe Knowledge is Power. I am hosting a series of Senior Education Seminars to help educate the senior members
on subjects that are important to them but information maybe hard to find or not broadly discussed. If information is
available, they are often online and sometimes not that easy to understand.
The Senior Education Seminars are in-person seminars. Speakers are knowledgeable and experienced individuals who
will generously share their knowledge and important information with us. I hope you will continue to attend the seminars and continue to learn as we navigate in this world that seems to get more and more complicated everyday.
Here are the dates of the seminars: at the Ygnacio Valley Library:
