The retirement years are full of possibilities for today's seniors. There are a wide array of opportunities out there that can make the retirement years truly golden, especially for today's active senior.
There are a lot of challenges - and questions - as well. Health care, finances and estate planning, and looking after loved ones often leave seniors looking for answers.
Local seniors will be able to get the answers to many of the important aspects of their lives at the Daily Press Senior Citizen Expo. The event. slated next week, is a fact-filled, informative and fun way to get the knowledge you need to make those important decisions in your life.
Best of all - it's totally free - including lunch.
