Two award-winning vocalists, Denny Diamond and Maureen Christine, will bring their talents together to close out the day at Maine Township MaineStreamers “Swing into Spring” Senior Expo scheduled for Thursday, April 25, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Golf Mill Shopping Center in Niles. Vendors will exhibit from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the dazzling musicians will perform between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. The 13th Annual Senior Expo promises entertainment, health screenings, information from businesses and organizations that provide services and products to make senior life better.

The day kicks off with Early Bird Bingo sponsored by Athletico featuring gift cards to local restaurants for winners. The morning raffle will feature theater tickets, restaurant gift cards, movie tickets and more. Attendees can participate in a free Zumba class for beginners as well as an informational Senior Scam Prevention Program, sponsored by the Park Ridge Police Department. The afternoon raffle sponsored by Maine Township Supervisor Laura J. Morask and the Maine Township Elected Officials will feature three $100 gift cards.

“Seniors are too often overlooked yet are the lifeblood of a truly thriving community. One of the things that sets our township apart is the recognition of a need for development of programming geared towards two distinct senior populations which face different needs and challenges in keeping their lives active and engaged.” Supervisor Morask said. “Marie Dachniwsky and her team have geared this award-winning expo to feature services and products for all age ranges, so whether you are 60 or 85, you can expect to find information and services geared to your particular needs.”

This event continues to be an excellent opportunity for the local business community to reach a concentrated audience of older, active adults looking for products and services to improve their lives. Exhibit space sells out every year and is going to be limited again in 2019 to only 75 display tables which are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Event sponsorships are also available ranging between $250 to $2,500.

Exhibit spaces are available for $300 for companies and $250 for non-profit organizations and Golf Mill Shopping Center tenants. The expo will continue to be publicized in all the local news media and headlined in large mailings, as well as featured in Mainely News, the township newsletter with 55,000 circulation.

Free to all seniors, the Senior Expo is sponsored by Maine Township, Advocate Lutheran General Hospital, Journal & Topics Newspapers, Senior News 50 and Better, Suburban Resource Guide for Seniors, and Parkway Bank.

“The Senior Expo is a fun-filled day,” Director Dachniwsky said. “It provides seniors with valuable information to enrich their lives.”
