Dr. Charles Sprague was the driving force behind the establishment of The Sage Society.
He served as its first chairman, and he continued to guide its development until the time of his death in 2005.
The two major goals of the society are:
- to build financial support for our services that improve the quality of life of our community’s older adults
- to educate community leaders on the challenges and concerns of the aging population.
In these days of shrinking support and public funds, community becomes vital if we are to meet the increasing needs of older adults and their families. With THE SAGE SOCIETY, we hope to highlight the urgency of giving older Americans a higher place on the agenda of community concerns and create a brighter future for all generations.
The 2017 Sage Society annual dinner took place Tuesday, April 25, at the Dallas Country Club. The event featured Joel Allison, who recently stepped down as President and CEO of Baylor Scott and White Health after a 40 year career in health care administration. Thank you to all who join us as Mr. Allison presented: “Health Care in America: Where Do We Go From Here.”
Photos from the event are below.
The annual membership entitles participants to attend entertaining and educational presentations at a dinner held each spring, and support the work of The Senior Source. The financial support generated will allow The Senior Source to be proactive in enhancing and expanding our services to the rapidly increasing number of older adults in the greater Dallas area.
