COLLINS, Miss. - A crowd gathered for the first ever 'Retirement and Senior Health' Expo at the Collins Civic Center Friday.
The event drew in hundreds of seniors and 30 vendors. Organizer of the event, Jill Deakle, said the Expo serves as a one-stop-shop for seniors to obtain value information that can benefit them.
"I think they need to know, not just stuff for themselves, but for aging parents, about healthcare, and agencies that can help" said Deakle.
Deakle said the location of the Expo in Collins served as a midway Hub for senior citizens in surrounding areas.
