Record turnout at the Cobb County Senior Expo

Barry Krebs sent the following report about this year’s Cobb County Senior Expo, along with the photos in the gallery below the report:

The Cobb County Senior Expo had a record turnout of over 1,350 attendees at their annual event at the Cobb Civic Center. The seniors and family members showed up to see all of the services, products and organizations that are available to retirees. Many civic organizations, including the Lions Clubs of Cobb County, were present. It is important for seniors to keep their minds sharp by getting out of the house to practice social skills and discover new experiences. Seniors are encouraged to check out all of the civic organizations available to them.
