“This annual fair brings dozens of vendors who cater to the needs of seniors under one roof,” said Wilcox. “I would encourage all seniors, family members, and caregivers to attend this free event.”
Flu shots and free health screenings will be available, and those who attend can learn about alternative ways to lead a happier and healthier lifestyle. A variety of local vendors will also be on hand to discuss programs and services that benefit seniors. Admission is free and refreshments will be served.
