Herald, RichnerLive teaming up to host Senior Expo in August


Herald Community Newspapers and RichnerLive will host a summer Senior Health & Beyond Expo on Thursday, Aug. 8, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Merrick Jewish Centre.

This free event is dedicated to enhancing the health and lifestyle of Long Island seniors. Families and caregivers are welcome to attend.

The Senior Health & Beyond Expo will feature more than 40 exhibitors, including companies whose specialties range from healthcare, insurance, fitness, and financial and estate planning. Experts from various industries will provide information during a panel discussion and subsequent question-and-answer session.

After the panel discussion, Howard Newman will perform his Jokesercise Show, a bit conceived just for seniors that combines comedy and exercise.

Each attendee will receive a goody bag, courtesy of Long Beach Assisted Living, as well as a Senior Savings Coupon Booklet, created specially for this event with local deals. Attendees will have the chance to win door prizes and giveaways, including a $500 grand prize gift card.

Event registration includes refreshments and light snacks, hearing screenings and Mary Kay consultations, along with a 52-week gift subscription to a Herald Community Newspaper. Convenient free parking is provided.
