Aldergrove Seniors’ Fair a success

Hundreds turn out to hear of services available to seniors in community

Hundreds of guests packed the Aldergrove Legion Hall on Thursday for the first-ever Seniors’ Fair in this community.

A wide variety of private and public services provided information from their booths and the guest speakers talked about everything from wills to crime prevention.

Guests browsed the booths, where the different service providers answered questions and talked about everything from in-home care and care homes to hearing aids and social services and events in the community.

Speakers also took to the podium to talk about age-related topics such as wills and estate planning, and how to recognize fraudulent activities that target the vulnerable.

Judging by the turnout this event was well-received by seniors in Aldergrove and should become a regular event in the community’s calendar.
