Home » News & Events » Look for JCA at The Beacon 50+ Expos on September 11 & 25
JCA is a proud sponsor of the 50+ Expos presented by The Beacon.
Be sure to stop by our table at either Expo to learn more about JCA programs and volunteer opportunities! With two dates to choose from, there’s no reason to miss out on this great community resource.
Sunday, September 11, 12 – 4 p.m., Silver Spring Civic Center
Sunday, September 25, 12 – 4 p.m., Springfield Town Center
The expos will feature free health screenings — including blood pressure, bone density, balance, vascular and glaucoma screenings — exercise demonstrations, and flu vaccines, free with a Medicare card.
Also, seniors should be sure to check out the Tech Cafe — at the Silver Spring Expo only — for free one-on-one computer and device mentoring by high school students.
The keynote speaker at both locations will be Lt. Joe Kenda, star of “Homicide Hunter,” the #1 TV show on the Investigation Discovery channel. Kenda is a retired homicide detective and will share highlights from the cases he investigated, as well as how he made a career change when he was in his 60s. He will also offer personal safety tips.
In addition, more than 100 exhibitors – including government agencies, nonprofits and local businesses – will offer information and answer questions about retirement communities, home remodeling, financial planning, healthcare, travel, fitness, senior services and more – plus there will be plenty of giveaways and door prizes!
