Hundreds Attend Senior Expo. in TC

Hundreds of seniors attended an event Wednesday to learn more about what resources are available to them.

The Grand Traverse Civic Center was packed Wednesday afternoon for the 14th Annual Ideas for Life Senior Expo.

More than 100 organizations were there– offering products and services such as health care, assisted living and ear aids to help seniors and their families.

Those working the event say it’s great to interact with seniors and be a part of their lives.

“I like helping people and it’s a great event to be able to give back to the community,” said Tammy Tarsa, Integrity Home Health and Skilled Care Owner. “A lot of times people come through and they see you as wanting something from them, so this is a great way to be able to give back so easily.”

About 1,200 people attended the expo this year.
