Life gets better with age.
So does the Thrive Over 55 Senior Expo.
The Leader’s annual event geared toward area seniors, now in its seventh year, is scheduled for Sept. 18. It will be held from 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at SPJST Lodge 88, located at 1435 Beall St. in the Heights.
The expo will give the community’s seniors a chance to connect with local businesses that cater to their needs, such as those in health care, real estate, financial planning and savings, estate planning, travel and the legal profession. It’s also a great opportunity for businesses to learn about the needs of people in the area they serve.
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.
More than 500 are expected to attend, and citizens of all ages are welcome. So the expo will offer the opportunity to socialize as well.
Best of all? The event is free, and breakfast, lunch and drinks will be provided.
Those planning to attend must register by calling 713-686-8494 or visiting theleadernews.com.
Vendor packages, which start at $375 and include a booth and advertisement in The Senior Living Guide, are still available by calling 713-686-8494. The Senior Living Guide will be distributed to every senior in attendance and in all 30,000 copies of the Sept. 14 edition of The Leader.
So don’t wait to make sure you can participate in one of our most popular events of the year.
