So wet weather doesn’t dampen the Senior Expo, The Leader is rescheduling its annual event for Wednesday, Oct. 16.
The Thrive Over 55 Senior Expo, originally scheduled for this week, has been postponed until next month because of a tropical storm that is expected to bring heavy rain and possible flooding to the Houston area. Although the date of the event has changed, it is still scheduled for 8:30-1 p.m. at SPJST Lodge 88 at 1435 Beall St. in the Heights.
The Senior Expo is geared toward area seniors and their needs, but people of all ages are welcome to attend the free event. Those planning to attend are encouraged to register by calling 713-686-8494 or visiting theleadernews.com.
The expo will give the community’s seniors a chance to connect with about 50 local businesses that specialize in fields such as health care, real estate, financial planning and savings, estate planning and the legal profession. Expert speakers are lined up who will offer advice about living a fulfilling life at retirement age and how to cope with the challenges that may arise.
The event also will provide information and resources to those who care for seniors or are close to being seniors themselves. The Senior Expo will offer opportunities to socialize as well as breakfast, lunch and drinks will be provided.
