Senior and Veteran Expo
March 24, 2010 by WLKM
State Rep. Tonya Schuitmaker and Sen. Tom George are asking local community organizations and businesses to participate as event sponsors and exhibitors in the fifth annual Kalamazoo area Senior and Veteran Expo.
The event, hosted by state Rep. Tonya Schuitmaker, Sen. Tom George and the Mattawan Lions Club, takes place on Monday, April 19th, at the Antwerp Township Activity Center from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
“This is a great opportunity for local groups and businesses to showcase their organization and for seniors and veterans to learn more about what our community has to offer,” said Schuitmaker, of Lawton. “This has always been a popular event in the past but we are hoping to even greater participation and more than 100 exhibitors this year.”
Schuitmaker said exhibitor tables and sponsorships are a perfect marketing opportunity for local businesses. The expo will include health screenings by Bronson Lakeview Hospital, including free cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar tests as well as vision screenings.
Military memorabilia will also be on display.
Admission is free and transportation will be provided for seniors and veterans to attend the event.
