50-Plus Expo Bigger and Better
MP Mike Allen Co-hosts Event with Florenceville-Bristol Recreation Department
FLORENCEVILLE-BRISTOL – If you have questions about such things as Old Age Security, nutrition, being active, your financial well being or filling out a passport application, mark Thursday, May 16, on your calendar.
Tobique-Mactaquac MP Mike Allen and the Florenceville-Bristol Recreation Department are co-hosting a 50-Plus Expo at Northern Carleton Civic Centre and this year’s edition promises even more information, great entertainment and delicious food!
“The 50-Plus Expos have become a spring tradition for some people since I began holding them in 2008,” said Mr. Allen. “The event has grown in popularity each year and so has the interest from vendors and guests alike.
“Each time we hold one of these Expos, there’s lots of positive feedback and we use people’s suggestions to make the next event even better.”
The 50-Plus Expo will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Northern Carleton Civic Centre in Florenceville-Bristol and admission is completely free.
“Besides the government departments, non-profit organizations, members of associations and businesses who will have booths, visitors can attend brief information sessions throughout the day,” Mr. Allen explained.
There will also be entertainment by Carleton North High School students, and a free light lunch will be served, along with coffee and a treat earlier in the day.
“My staff and I look forward to seeing everyone in Florenceville-Bristol, as we hold our ninth 50-Plus Expo,” said the MP. “It’s also great to have the local recreation department co-hosting the event with us.”
Previous Expos have been held in Plaster Rock, Perth-Andover, Woodstock, Nackawic, the Rural Community of Upper Miramichi, Grand Falls and Hartland.
