ESCANABA - Tickets are still available for those interested in attending the third annual Daily Press Senior Expo on Tuesday at the Terrace Bay Inn, located between Gladstone and Escanaba.
Seniors citizens attending the free event will be presented various information from speakers addressing topics of interest to the senior community. Lunch will also be served for participants who will also have chances to win door prizes.
"This is an opportunity to bring seniors together to share a variety of information which they can use in their daily lives," said Ann Troutman, event coordinator and advertising director at the Daily Press.
Topics will address health, insurance, investments, law, pre-planned funerals, medical care and assisted living facilities, exercise opportunities, and other senior-related subjects, explained Troutman.
Speakers making presentations at this year's Senior Expo include representatives from OSF St. Francis Hospital, Marquette General Health System, Skradski Family Funeral Home, Pinecrest Medical Care Facility, Escanaba Hearing Services, Elder Law Firm, DTE Energy, Northern Lights YMCA, Lakeview Assisted Living, and Garceau, Wenick-Kutz, Magowan Insurance Agency.
The Senior Expo begins at 9 a.m. with presentations scheduled to 3:30 p.m. Following each presentation, audience members will be encouraged to ask questions.
Tickets, free to senior citizens, can be picked up at the Daily Press at 600 Ludington St. Tickets are given out on a first-come, first-served basis, and are going fast because of the increased participation in the annual event, said Troutman.
Those attending the Senior Expo are asked to bring a canned or dry good to the event to help support local food pantries. Canned goods can also be dropped off at the Daily Press during regular business hours.
