To kick off Aging: A Family Affair, the Office on Aging will host a Senior Expo Drive-Thru on Thursday, November 5, 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. at O’Connor Senior Center Parking Lot (611 Winona St. in Knoxville).

Vendors will provide information on local resources and services for seniors. Attendees will remain in their car, wear a face covering, and visit each booth throughout the drive-thru. It will be an exciting time of sharing helpful information and handing out goodies for you to take home.

Attendees are asked to wear masks or face coverings and remain in their cars. Social distancing will be practiced.
