Looking for information on senior products, resources, communities or assistance? Come to the Spring Senior Expo May 7 at the St. Maximillian Kolbe Church Hall on Black Point Road in Scarborough. Admission is free, there’s no registration, and we’ll have plenty of free parking, entertainment and raffle prizes.
We’ve gathered representatives from many senior communities, home health companies, insurance planners, estate management, rehabilitation and much more to showcase their services and be available for questions all day. You’ll be able to visit and talk with more than 40 vendors from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
But that’s not all. For a $5 donation, you can get an antique appraised (benefits the Alzheimer’s Association). We’ll have a Speaker’s Gallery (see the info elsewhere on these pages), plus a tap demonstration and live music. We’ll also have experience rooms, where you can learn more about the dementia experience first hand.
The Grand Prize
When you come in, be sure and pick up your free Expo bag, courtesy of the Osher Life Long Learning Center. Now’s the time to enter the drawing for the Grand Prize. Our grand prize includes:
Two excellent seats for the Maine State Music Theater show of your choice
A $50 gift certificate for dinner out on the town in Brunswick
And more surprises!
