18th annual senior expo planned June 1

The 18th annual Senior Citizen Expo will take place on Thursday, June 1.

The Senior Expo will be open from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Huntington North High School Fieldhouse this year.

Huntington North High School Athletic Department will be selling their Senior Citizens Silver Pass for those 62 years and older for $10 each. This pass will be good for the 2023-2024 school year: for all regular season home events at Huntington North High School. Passes can be purchased at their booth.

Many door prizes will be given away throughout the day. Attendees have an opportunity to win additional prizes through the Expo’s Passport Program sponsored by Duke Energy. The “passport” document is given to attendees at the entrance, lists every exhibitor booth. Visitors take their passports to the booths and the exhibitors will stamp their corresponding space on the document. Visiting half of the Expo’s booths qualifies the passport holder to be entered for a special drawing for one of twelve $50 gift cards.

Free meals and snacks will be available all day. Heritage Pointe Communities will provide breakfast for the first 400. A lunch will be provided by The Waters of Huntington.

Free all-day entertainment provided by Aetna Medicare Solutions will be featured on an easily viewed stage. Performances include: The Alley Kats, Frank Sinatra Tribute Artist (Russ Weed) and new this year Joe Justice (He played at the Senior Christmas Dinner).

Elvis is taking a hiatus this year and he hopes to resume shows sometime in the future. All of this will be announced by a professional D.J.

Other special features at the Huntington County Senior Expo include golf cart transportation between the parking lot and the fieldhouse and wheelchair accessibility within the facility.

The Huntington County Senior Expo continues to grow with help from corporate sponsors including Myers Funeral Homes, The Water of Huntington, Young Electric, Heritage Pointe Communities, Schroeder Automotive, TWN Communications, and Aetna Medicare Solutions. Their involvement and support ensure a high-quality event for the community.

The event is sponsored by Huntington County Council on Aging. Parking and admission are free.
