The Tulsa World is holding a Senior Living Expo for families that offers free health screenings as well as seminars on retirement, health care and housing.
The annual event is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at Stoney Creek Hotel and Convention Center, 200 W. Albany St., in Broken Arrow. Admission and parking are free.
A shuttle service will take participants from their vehicles to the event’s entrance.
More than 50 door prizes will be available, valued from $25 to $1,000. Come dressed to enter the 1950s-themed costume contest.
Bingo games will be played during the expo. Bingo cards are $1 each and proceeds will go to Folds of Honor, an Owasso nonprofit organization that provides educational scholarships to family members of military personnel killed or disabled during combat. Prizes to be given out to bingo winners were donated by the expo’s vendors.
Participants can shop for services and products from more than 100 local vendors.
Sixteen seminars will focus on topics for seniors, their caregivers and their families. These include Medicare, health care planning, downsizing, retirement planning and the best ways to stay active.
The Senior Living Expo is just one of several events that the Tulsa World holds each year. They include community forums, All-World Awards, Taste of the City and two career fairs. The next career fair will be Sept. 10.
