DelVal Hosts Senior Expo

Oct 08, 2009

 

Colleges are mostly associated with young people, but on Oct. 8 DelVal hosted a Senior Expo that filled the Moumgis Auditorium with mature adults.

 

The event was sponsored by State Rep. Katharine Watson and State Sen. Charles McIlhinney.  Both were unable to attend due to the budget crisis in Harrisburg, but their staff members were on hand to assist. Rows of vendors were set up at tables to supply helpful information as well as free gifts. Among the vendors were Doylestown Hospital, The Central Bucks Family YMCA, Bucks County Legal Aid, the Ann Silverman Health Center and the Bucks County Association for the Blind.

 

The seniors were treated to hot dogs and soft pretzels and received demonstrations on cooking, ballroom dancing and muscle strengthening exercises.
