Senior Center hosts annual Senior Expo and Grandparent Fest
Newton County

COVINGTON, Ga. - Newton County Senior Services will host their 16th Annual Senior Expo and Grandparent Fest Friday, Oct. 25 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Senior Center. Everyone is invited to this free, informative, and fun-filled event. 

This function will offer numerous exhibits, preventive medical screenings, demonstrations, entertainment, and activities relating to the health and lifestyles of older adults in our community. There will also be door prizes, raffles, arts and craft workshops, and homemade goodies. The first 100 seniors who are 60 years or older will receive a gift. It will be a delightful time for all!

In past years, this event has hosted more than 250 visitors and 55 vendors and exhibitors. With such a strong level of participation, the Senior Expo gives vendor and non-profit agencies the ability to bring information directly to our community while all being under one roof.  

With so many entities in one space at the same time, this event is great for everyone, especially people with limited mobility or limited time. There is no need to drive all over town to visit different businesses and organizations. Instead, come enjoy the convenience of having the town’s best senior-oriented establishments brought to you. Ask questions and find the answers you need from healthcare and senior living professionals. Plus, get creative and enjoy the extra arts and crafts activities! 

Celebrating sixteen years of bringing information to the Newton County senior population, this year’s theme will be “Unleash the Power of Age.” An additional aspect of the event will focus on the health and the well-being of seniors who are assisting or solely raising their grandchildren. Many resources are available for grandparents, and this important information will be presented at the event. 

The Annual Senior Expo and Grandparent Fest is a great opportunity to learn, have fun, and spend the morning with friends. Come join us as we celebrate seniors! 

The event will be held in the Frank B. Turner Community Room inside the Turner Lake Recreation and Senior Center located at 6183 Turner Lake Road in Covington, Georgia 30014. For questions, please call 770-787-0038.
