More than 500 people had a chance to learn about the agencies, resources and services available to them in the area at the 2024 Senior Expo of the Jackson County Council on Aging held Friday, Jan. 26, at the Scottsboro Goose Pond Civic Center.
Chad Coleman, council director, said the event gave the aging population in Jackson County an opportunity to learn from 51 vendors about services and resources. It was also a chance to listen to live music, dance, have food and win door prizes.
A paper shredder truck to safely get rid of confidential paperwork was available in the parking lot sponsored by First Southern State Bank. Music was provided by Roy Whitaker and the Jimmy Ray’s Slap Happy Hayride.
The free event lasted from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and was sponsored by One Love Hearing Concepts and Devoted Health Plans.
