On Friday, Oct. 19, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Howard County Office on Aging will host its 14th annual 50+ Expo at Wilde Lake High School. The event showcases different businesses, programs and activities in Howard County that appeal to the mature adult population. This year, Columbia Association (CA) will be a major sponsor at the expo. CA team members will take over Wilde Lake’s counseling center and showcase various CA programs and services that are offered to the older adult community.
CA has been involved with the 50+ Expo for several years. In the past, CA participated as an exhibitor. CA team members would promote programs like Fit Beginnings, WINN (When If Not Now), Volunteer Center Serving Howard County and Columbia Matters — CA’s monthly television show.
The 50+ Expo benefits the older adult population of Howard County in many ways. “The event is a great way for members of the 50+ population to learn what Howard County offers to them,” says Megan Monahan, marketing manager at CA. “The event features more than 150 exhibitors, health screenings, flu and pneumonia vaccines, entertainment, healthy aging seminars, life-enrichment workshops, entertainment, food and more,” Monahan adds.
