Senior Expo May 2017
The inaugural Senior Expo event was a huge success by all accounts. There were over 625 visitors surveying the tables of the 75 vendors. Even the bit of rain did not dampen the spirits of the public. Vendors reported getting good interactions with the visitors. The consensus at the end of the day was that it was a success and that the vendors will register for spaces again next year. A big thank you to Maria Santacoloma of United Healthcare and to Frank DeRosa of Maintain Your independence for their efforts in steering this event to such a success. Job well done!
