10th annual Senior and Veterans Expo held

    Area senior citizens and veterans came together with businesses and organizations who offer products, services, and resources important to them at the 10th annual Senior and Veterans Expo at the Antwerp Township Activity Center Monday. Local state legislators, Sen. Tonya Schuitmaker, Sen. Margaret O’Brien and Rep. Beth Griffin, hosted the event in partnership with the Mattawan Lions Club. “This event has continued to grow since it began over a decade ago and is now one of the biggest events of its kind in Southwest Michigan,” said Schuitmaker, R-Lawton. “Our seniors and veterans are respected members of this state and the expo serves as an opportunity to give back and to express our gratitude for all they have given to us. I was happy to be a part of yet another successful year, and I would like to thank my colleagues and all who attended.”  The more than 700 citizens who took part received tote bags to collect free giveaways and information materials, and were offered a box lunch.
