The Baby Boomer/Senior Expo is about more than just preparing for the twilight years.
“It’s not about aging. It’s about living,” Debbie Orlove, community/business liaison in the Baltimore County Department of Aging, said.
The 25th annual expo takes place Wednesday and Thursday at the Maryland State Fairgrounds, with the emphasis on providing products, resources and information for the county’s aging population.
“It offers one-stop-shopping. It offers something for everyone. … You can find whatever you need,” Orlove said. “It could involve traveling It could involve volunteerism. It could involve lifelong learning. It could involve medical supplies. It’s all that and more.”
The expo kicks off at 9 a.m. Wednesday in the Cow Palace at 2200 York Rd. in Timonium. The show runs from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Wednesday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursday. The cost of entry is either $2 or two cans of non-perishable food.
Proceeds benefit the Fund for Needy Seniors.
There are more than 250 exhibitors at the expo that will benefit not only the senior and/or baby boomer crowd.
“We welcome not only older adults but baby boomers, caregivers, persons with disabilities—we’re just thrilled to be able to provide this after 25 years,” Orlove said.
