Thorne Crest to Hold Free ‘Downsizing’ Presentation April 26

Thorne Crest Senior Living Community will be holding a free presentation by Kimberly Alwin, owner of A Smooth Move, on Thursday, April 26 at 2pm, at the community.

The presentation, titled “Rightsizing: What You Must Know Before You Move,” will be a fun and interactive presentation that tackles how to plan for a move and “Rightsize” your precious belongings.

Join us to get ideas on what to keep in a move and how to make the new space work well for you. We’ll consider layout planning & design tips, as well as pitfalls to avoid when you move. Attendees will learn how to plan a move, ideas on what to keep, how to make your new home work for you and much more. The event will also feature free refreshments and door prizes.

“Most of our clients have not moved in 30 years or more and need to considerably reduce their possessions in order to resettle”, says Kimberly.  While the task can seem overwhelming, the team at A Smooth Move has successfully helped countless families navigate this stressful time over the past 12 years.

Also, if you have decorative items you no longer want, feel free to bring one with you! There will be an opportunity to swap items with others attending the seminar.  Anything that is left behind will be donated.
