Area Seniors Attend Expo Held at Joliet Junior College

Joliet area Seniors filled the concourse of the C, D, E and F buildings at Joliet Junior College's Main Campus location for the 7th Annual Senior Expo March 18, 2009. The expo is a yearly event coordinated by Let's Play Seniors in Motion in conjunction with Joliet Junior College.

More than five hundred Seniors attended the morning expo. Long time area residents along with new comers to the area were able to take advantage of visiting with more than eighty area vendors and learn about services available to Seniors in the Joliet area.

Additionally, many took advantage of free health screenings, Jesse White, Secretary of State Mobile Drivers license facility and the Will County TRIAD. The first five hundred seniors were given bright green, reusable, environment friendly, tote bags. The bags symbolized the "Going Green" theme of this year's expo. Door prizes donated by a variety of vendors and sponsors were also a highlight of the yearly event.

Seniors in Motion and Joliet Junior college coordinators are already planning the 8th Annual Senior Expo. The expo is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, March 17, 2010 from 9am to noon at the Joliet Junior College Main Campus location.
