MP Allen to Host Final 50-Plus Expo
Woodstock – Since elected the Member of Parliament for Tobique-Mactaquac in 2006, Mike Allen has hosted ten 50-Plus Expos throughout the riding, and on Thursday, May 21st, the 11th and final edition will be presented in Woodstock.
“The Expos are a favourite activity of mine in the riding each year and the 2015 edition will be bittersweet as I prepare to leave the political realm this fall,” he said. “I always enjoy meeting with all of the folks who drop by and chatting about everything from the weather to current federal policies. There has been plenty of great advice and feedback over the years.”
On Thursday, May 21, MP Allen and the Town of Woodstock are co-hosting a 50-Plus Expo at the Carleton Civic Centre’s new Field House, and this year’s edition promises the same quality information, great entertainment and delicious food!
The reasons to attend this completely free event are numerous. Maybe you have questions about such things as Old Age Security and CPP or living a little healthier through balanced nutrition and being active. Perhaps you are looking for information on financial planning, estates and wills or you need a little help filling out a passport application.
“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 exhibitors and guests alike.
The 50-Plus Expo will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Civic Centre Field House on Thursday, May 21, and admission is completely free. Along with booths and displays by government departments, non-profit organizations and businesses, visitors can attend brief information sessions throughout the day. Entertainment and a light lunch will also be served, along with coffee and a treat earlier in the day.
“My staff and I look forward to seeing everyone in Woodstock, as we hold our final 50-Plus Expo,” said the MP. “I hope to see lots of friends from past events and meet some new people as well.”
Previous Expos have been held in Plaster Rock, Perth-Andover, Hartland, Nackawic, the Rural Community of Upper Miramichi, Grand Falls and Florenceville-Bristol.
