Vendors needed for Senior Expo in Hannibal

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

The Annual Senior Expo in Hannibal is accepting registration for vendor booths.

Organizers said every year, housing and healthcare resources are available for seniors.

But this year, organizers want to see fitness, hair shops, and pet care businesses.

Senior Expo chair Stacey Nicholas said many seniors have trouble accessing transportation or driving, so it is important to provide options at the expo so seniors can know what resources are in the community.

"One of the nice things about this population is they actually read material, so often times they are picking up information as they are going along and later I will hear someone say 'Oh I got this while I was senior expo and I read it the next week and now I'm gonna call this person," Nicholas said.

This year's theme is "Your Voice Counts" because of the 2020 election and the census.

"Many services older adults rely on are funded through federal dollars and those federal dollars are decided by census numbers," Nicholas said. "So when you say I'm not gonna do the census, you're actually knocking money out of your community's hands often for services you need."

Non-profits can sign up for the senior expo for $25 dollars and for profit businesses for $50 until March 10.

After that, the cost is $35 for non- profits and $60 for profits.

The deadline to register is March, 30.

The Annual Senior Expo is scheduled for April 16 at the Admiral Coontz Armory.
