CUMMING — Forsyth County seniors are invited to learn more about community resources during the annual Senior Expo.
The event is set for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Lanier Technical College Forsyth Conference Center, 3410 Ronald Reagan Blvd.
During the free expo, seniors and their families can visit a number of booths set up by various businesses and agencies in a range of areas such as home care, senior living, and legal and medical care.
There will also be refreshments provided by area restaurants and free health screenings, such as blood pressuring and glucose monitoring, from local medical offices.
Last year the event drew about 1,500 visitors, the most in its history, and featured some 85 vendors. Organizers anticipate a similar turnout Saturday.
Due to that success, they have lengthened this year’s expo, extending it to four hours.
“We look forward to our community’s seniors and their families, friends and caregivers attending and taking advantage of all the information that will be available,” said Julie Gruen, special events team leader with Forsyth County Senior Services.
