CUMMING - The recent Forsyth Senior Expo drew record attendance, with organizers estimating that more than 1,500 people attended the free event.

It is organized by Forsyth County Senior Services and provides information regarding a variety of topics including health care, housing, finance, safety and security, recreation, and travel. Approximately 85 vendors were on hand this year to provide information to senior citizens as well as their families and friends.

"We appreciate the community's attendance at the Forsyth Senior Expo," Senior Services Director Michael Bohn said. "We also extend sincere thanks to all of the volunteers and vendors who helped to make the event such a success."

Now in its eleventh year, the event was held this year for the first time at the Forsyth Conference Center at Lanier Technical College.
