The Upper Cumberland Area Agency on Aging and Disability (AAAD) invites seniors and caregivers from across the region to attend the 15th Annual Upper Cumberland Senior Expo on Thursday, October 20, 2016, from 9:00am to 1:00pm at Hyder-Burks Agricultural Pavilion in Cookeville, Tenn.
Organized by the Upper Cumberland AAAD, the Senior Expo, brings together businesses, service providers, seniors and caregivers in a one-day networking event. Participants have the opportunity to gather resources from vendors, receive door prizes, and participate in hands-on educational activities. Each year, the Senior Expo attracts hundreds of seniors and caregivers from all fourteen counties in the Upper Cumberland region, with optional transportation being coordinated at each county's senior center.
An addition to this year's event will include a costume contest. Attendees are encouraged to participate by dressing in tasteful Halloween costumes. Contest participants will be entered to win a prize. The Halloween theme will be extended to the sponsors, who are invited to participate in the booth decoration contest.
Attendees can take advantage of free health screenings at the expo, including the Kidney Awareness Risk Evaluation (KARE) offered by the Tennessee Kidney Foundation. The KARE program is a free health screening that seeks to identify individuals at increased risk for kidney disease and encourage them to seek further evaluation and follow up with their physicians.
Who should come to this event? Typically, seniors are the main participants but caregivers and other health care professionals are encouraged to attend, as well. Where else can you learn about resources that cover all 14 counties in the Upper Cumberland? For more information, please contact AAAD Family Caregiver Manager Clare Farless at 931-432-4111 or email@example.com.
The Area Agency on Aging and Disability(AAAD), a division of the Upper Cumberland Development District, connects older adults and adults with disabilities in the 14-county Upper Cumberland region with services and resources to improve their quality of life.

Tennessee fell from No. 9 to No. 25 in the AP Top 25 Poll following Saturday’s 49-10 loss to Alabama. The Crimson Tide remain at No. 1. Next up for the Vols is a road trip to South Caroline at take on the Gamecocks.
Instead of producing whiskey, union members are manning picket lines at two Jim Beam distilleries in Kentucky where workers have gone on strike against the world's largest bourbon producer.
More than 200 workers walked off their jobs after rejecting the latest contract offer Friday. On Saturday, passing motorists honked in support of workers holding picket signs outside Beam's plant in Clermont.
Bill Ball, a 47-year Beam employee, hopes the dispute is settled quickly, but says striking workers are prepared to stay off their jobs "for the long haul" if necessary. Strikers say staffing shortages force them to work long hours of overtime to keep up with demand for Beam whiskey.
The company said Friday contingency plans will keep operations running to maintain the flow of whiskey to distributors and consumers.
