We Would Like to Hear from You
The 55+ Advisory Committee will be conducting focus groups to gather information on what additional 55+ programs and services you’d like to see in Reston. Sessions will be offered during the day and evening. No dates have been scheduled yet. We’re asking you for a one-time, one-hour commitment. All participants will be entered into a drawing for a $50 gift card to a local restaurant. This is an opportunity for you to become an active advocate of Reston today as well as for the future.
