The annual Senior Expo will be from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 26 at the Geneseo Community Center.
The expo will feature vendors exhibiting everything from information on senior housing to entertainment options.
"The expo is an opportunity for people to receive a lot of information about various companies and organizations under one roof," said Dee Evans, general manager of the Henry County Advertizer-Shopper and Geneseo Republic, which is co-sponsoring the event with Central Bank, Good Samaritan Village and Hammond-Henry Hospital.
"A lot of vendors will have giveaways and prize drawings. In addition, those who attend will have the chance to win door prizes," said Evans. "There will be items available to sample as well as items available for purchase."
The highlight of the Senior Expo will be a hot lunch buffet served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The buffet, prepared by Hammond-Henry Hospital, will feature main meat dishes as well as vegetables, salad, drinks and desserts.
In addition, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m., attendees can play bingo games for the chance to win prizes.
