I guess whoever scheduled

I guess whoever scheduled this EXPO didn't want people over 50 who still work for a living to attend. Why not have some weekend or evening hours too?

Over 50 and still working...

Agreed KathyR. This Expo looks to be very thought out and beneficial for us to attend, but alas, a lot of us over 50 are still pulling 40-50 hour weeks. I wonder what our bosses would say if we asked for the day off so we could attend. Ha!


I'm surprised the local Senior Center was not invited to participate....

They aren't buying new homes

You really didn't think they were having this Expo because they actually care about seniors ,did you ?

Just think

By the time those 50+ year olds get out of the parking deck they'll be old enough for Social Security !!!

By the way - where's the hotel developer? I thought the 90 day extension has run out? Are we still awaiting funding?
