From Land-of-Sky Regional Council:

Land-of-Sky Regional Council’s Volunteer Services Department is looking for vendors to participate in its Annual Wellness Expo to be held Monday, September 23, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Biltmore Square Mall in Asheville. Last year, the event attracted more than 500 senior adult participants.

The theme for this year’s event is “Discover Your Community” and aims to increase health awareness and access to community services in aging adults, their caregivers and families. Nonprofit organizations can participate for $15, while for-profit businesses can participate for $100.

In 2012, the Expo featured more than 75 vendors offering basic health screenings, flu shots, and a variety of informational booths designed to help the community become aware of aging adult related programs and services in our surrounding area

The Expo is the kick-off event to this year’s Active Aging Week. For more information, contact Stacy Friesland at 828.251.6622.
