Senior Expo to take place June 29

After rescheduling twice, the 18th annual Senior Expo will take place from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. June 29 at Huntington North High School Fieldhouse. “Everything is a go,” said Dick Murray, assistant director Huntington County Council on Aging. “I’m very pleased things seem to be working out after a very trying year.” Originally scheduled for May 18 at Huntington University, necessary renovations made it necessary to find another location, Murry said. The event was then scheduled for June 1 at Huntington North until it became known that renovations were needed there to some water lines. “I’m very happy,” Murray said. “The school has been very cooperative.” There will be approximately 80 vendors at the event, Murry said. Parking and admission are free. Golf cart transportation will be provided from the parking lot to the Fieldhouse and the facility is wheelchair accessible. Huntington North’s High School Athletic Department will be selling its Senior Citizen Silver Pass for anyone 62 years-old and older. The passes cost $10 each and are good for the 2023-2024 school year, including all regular season home events at the high school. Door prizes will be given away throughout the day and additional prizes can be had through the Expo’s Passport Program, sponsored by Duke Energy. The passport document is given to attendees at the entrance and lists all the exhibitors who can stamp the passport. Visiting half of the expo booths qualities the holder for a special drawing for one of 12 $50 gift cards. Free meals and snacks will be served during the day beginning with breakfast for the first 400 attendees provided by Heritage Pointe communities. Lunch will be provided by The Waters of Huntington. Entertainment will be happening all day, sponsored by Aetna Medicare Solutions. Alley Kats, Frank Sinatra tribute artist Russ Weed, Joe Justice and Marty Randall will perform on an easily viewable stage where a professional DJ will announce events. Corporate sponsors include Myers Funeral Homes, The Waters of Huntington, Young Electric, Heritage Pointe Communities, Schroeder Automotive, TWN Communications and Aeta Medicare Solutions.
