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.
