KINGFIELD – SeniorsPlus, Western Maine’s designated Agency on Aging, will present a mini-expo on Thursday, April 18th (snow date Friday, April 19th) from 8 a.m. to noon at the Kingfield Elementary School. The Franklin County Aging Well Mini-Expo will offer workshops and the opportunity for social interaction for older people. The event is free and includes raffles and complimentary continental breakfast by the Orange Cat Café. It is open to the public. Registration is not required.

Franklin County Aging Well Mini-Expo offers inspiration and tips for living a healthy, active lifestyle. In addition to informational sessions about all that SeniorsPlus offers, there will be two presentations.

Author Megan Roberts will give an illustrated talk based on her new book Titcomb, A Mountain of Ski Memories, which will highlight the 80-year history of the Farmington Ski Club’s ownership of the mountain. Following the talk, books will be available for purchase and Roberts will be signing books.

Following Roberts’s talk, Waterville-based, elder-law attorney Mark Nale will give a talk entitled “Long-Term Care Options and Protecting Your Assets,” in which he will discuss ways to pay for this long-term care while protecting assets for your heirs. Nale has practiced law for 32-years, focusing on Elder Law.

An officer from the Franklin County Sheriff's Dept. will be on hand to collect expired/unused prescription and over-the-counter medications, vitamins, and pet medication.

During breaks, participants may check out exhibitors’ booths displaying information about Franklin County-area services.
