“This will be fourth year of re-starting the Benzie Senior Expo. It used to occur before my time here,” said Kay Wellington Edwards, Paul Oliver activity director. “Last year, Building Benzie Bonds work group assisted in maintaining and offering the expo. It gives any person in Benzie County the opportunity to come and meet folks who more or less specialize in senior services. A lot of it is focused on care needs and stuff, but we’ll have bankers and information on estate planning … it is a wide variety for people to gather information and talk to experienced folks in their field. Folks to ask questions about their services being offered.”
