2013 Senior Expo – Parting Words

You know that wave of pleasure and satisfaction that rolls over you when something goes the way you hoped it would?

That’s exactly how our Senior Center staff was feeling in the wake of last Friday’s Senior Expo.

We are so grateful to the many people who rallied to help us put on our best health fair to date.

I’d like to express thanks to the sponsors who footed the bills for the Expo.

These include our Title Sponsor Renew Home Health, and our Bronze level sponsors Abbi Home Care, Arbor House Weatherford, Bethany HomeHealth Services, IntegraCare Home Health and Hospice, Palo Pinto Nursing & Rehab, and Physical Therapy Dynamics.

We are grateful to all those who provided free health screenings, including audiologist Dr. Terri Edwards from New Sound Solutions, Walmart Vision Center, Palo Pinto General Hospital, CVS Pharmacy, Mineral Wells Medical Supply, and the many exhibitors who performed blood pressure, blood glucose and oxygen level tests at their tables.

We’d also like to thank the community supporters who donated food and prizes for the event.

Walmart provided fresh fruit and yogurt for breakfast, Chick-fil-A Weatherford contributed enough chicken sandwiches and Jake Maynard from the Mesquite Pit donated coleslaw for lunch.

Wes-Tex Vending supplied the coffee that everyone drank throughout the morning. Mineral Wells Nursing & Rehab and Lakewell House provided the prizes for the Bingo run by the Better Business Bureau.

The North Central Texas Council of Governments donated all the tote bags for the event, and Baum-Carlock-Bumgardner Funeral Home and TXU furnished bottled water and LED nightlights for each senior attendee.

And we owe a big debt of gratitude to First Baptist Church for allowing us the use of their gym and classrooms for exhibitors, health screeners and workshops.

  • Ordinary heroes

    It seems kind of funny to me that our society celebrates the abilities of some people while ignoring those of others.

  • FEB BD.jpg Treasures Galore

    Have you heard that old saying, “One person’s junk is another person’s treasure”? Well let me tell you, we’ve got treasure to spare!


    Since early Monday morning, our volunteers have been unpacking, sorting, pricing and arranging truckloads of treasure for the annual Gigantic Garage Sale that begins tonight. Our $10-per-person Early Bird Sale will run from 5-7 this evening, but the real fun begins tomorrow morning. The sale from 9-5 on Friday, March 14, and 9-1 on Saturday, March 15, is free to the public.
