Mills Community Support presents the North Lanark Seniors Expo on Thursday, September 7

The North Lanark Seniors Expo returns September 7th from 10am to 3pm for its 7th consecutive year, so mark your calendars! This popular showcase of information, services and products for people 50 years and older, as well as their families and caregivers, attracted a crowd of 600+ people last year and 78 exhibitors. The Expo is held at the Almonte Community Center at 182 Bridge Street, which offers plenty of parking and full accessibility. There is no charge to attend the Expo.

Visitors will encounter a variety of supports, products and services at the Expo from exhibitors such as the Canadian National Institute of the Blind, the Canadian Hearing Society, Almonte General Hospital, Hub Hospice, CAA North & East, the Civitan Club, The Older Adult Centres’ Association of Ontario (OACAO), as well as travel agencies, physiotherapists, massage therapists, and seniors’ residences such as Waterside, Carleton Place Terrace, and Orchard View by the Mississippi. And this is just to name a few of the many different exhibitors who will be on hand.

Plan to make a day of your visit to the Expo. Doors open at 10am for the singing of O Canada, and the Expo continues until 3pm. Lunch is available to purchase on site, and complimentary coffee, tea, water and snacks—sponsored by Carleton Place Terrace—are available throughout the day.  Mills Community Support staff and a small army of Seniors Expo volunteers will be on hand to guide you. You may even be a lucky winner of one of the fabulous door prizes!

The North Lanark Seniors Expo is hosted by Mills Community Support as part of its commitment to creating age-friendly communities in North Lanark. Financial support from OACAO (The Older Adult Centres’ Association of Ontario) and Presenting Sponsorship from Orchard View by the Mississippi help make the Expo possible. Organizing committee members include these organizations plus Ravines Seniors’ Suites and Retirement Residence and the Alzheimer Society Lanark Leeds Grenville. Event sponsors include Carleton Place Terrace, Waterside Retirement Community, Capital Home Medical Equipment, Bayshore Home Health and The Mississippi Valley Textile Museum.

Exhibitor space is still available. There is no cost for non-profit organizations to promote their services at the Expo, thanks to the OACAO funding. For businesses the cost is just $60.00 for an 8ft table, and this fee even includes 2 lunches per exhibitor table.  Space is booking up quickly, as it does every year, so for more information or to register as an exhibitor please call Jan Watson at 256-1031 Ext 39, or contact her by email at jwatson@themills.on.ca.
