About the 2023 Bell County Senior Expo
The Annual 2023 Bell County Senior Expo will be held at the Bell County Expo Center on Tuesday, September 26th, from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. This event is free and open to the public. This year’s theme is “Under the Sea”.
The Senior Expo is designed to showcase how businesses, organizations and activities in the Central Texas area make our community a “Senior Friendly” place to live. With 95 vendors, participants can pick up information on nutrition and fitness, housing, financial planning, pharmaceuticals, volunteer opportunities, hobbies and leisure activities, as well as learn about retirement communities, nursing and rehabilitation facilities, insurance, after-life arrangements and more. Each visitor will be provided with a Senior Expo bag so they can bring home some goodies and lots of information from our vendors.
The no-pressure, fun-filled day will also include musical entertainment, special giveaways and drawings for door prizes. This year there will be two different HD televisions given away. Door prizes will be given away throughout the event provided by the vendors. So be sure to visit every booth!
The Bell County Public Health Department will be onsite to provide COVID boosters and various immunizations depending on availability. Advent Health care will provide medical services to check blood pressure, body mass index, cholesterol and glucose readings, and Texas Hearing will be there to provide free hearing screenings.
The Senior Expo will also host two guest speakers upstairs in the Special Events room, which can be accessed via stairs or elevator.
9:00 A.M. – 10:00 A.M we have the Scott Zipp Agency who will "solve the financial issues of living too long, dying too young, or becoming sick.” He will discuss Zero-Cost Medicare and Health Insurance options.
