Stream of people eager to learn more at U3A Seniors Expo

WITH an overflowing car park and wall-to-wall people inside the Hume Ridge Church of Christ building, it would be an understatement to say the 2015 U3A Seniors Expo was 'popular'.

From the moment the doors opened on August 19, there was a steady stream of people eager to learn more about the services, facilities and products available to seniors in Toowoomba and the Darling Downs.

Clutching sample bags and other 'freebies', patrons moved from booth to booth, gathering information on topics as diverse as overseas and local travel, regional council services and facilities, legal issues, health advice and residential living options.

An interesting program of guest speakers also kept the crowds entertained.

Not surprisingly, the kitchen support staff were actively engaged for the duration of the expo as visitors replenished their energy reserves with tasty morning teas and yummy light lunches.

This highlight of Seniors Week continues to grow in both popularity and size and we can hardly wait until next year.
