We give you stories each month we think will make a difference, inform and entertain you. It is our passion.

Now we want you to look forward to something exciting and concrete, the Boomer Bash & Senior Expo.

If you have not been to a Boomer Bash, don’t miss this one. It is Nov. 15 at the Brevard Veterans Memorial Center, 400 S. Sykes Creek Parkway on Merritt Island, behind the Merritt Square Mall.

This is a great venue, because in addition to the expo, participants also will be able to tour what is arguably the best veterans’ museum in the state.

What is the Boomer Bash & Senior Expo?

The event is presented by Senior Life for you. It is a day of entertainment, exhibits and helpful information for boomers and seniors. There will be limited free medical screenings, social groups to share information and entertainment. In addition, take advantage and see the Veterans Memorial Center’s displays of war memorabilia, vehicles, weapons, medals, tanks, uniforms and aircraft.

Participants in the expo can enter to win prizes, including a grand prize. You also can enter the Red, White and Blue dress contest. Judging will be at noon.

We also will be searching for Boomer Guide models. Get your photo taken and submit your application for a chance to be featured in the 2019 Boomer Guide. Red, White and Blue attire is required.

Don’t know the Boomer Guide? Copies of this comprehensive guide to just about anything you need to know about Brevard County are available at the expo. To pick up a free copy from our office, call 321-242-1235.

And best of all, it’s all free, including admission to the museum. Doors open at 10 a.m.

We have enlisted many community partners to bring you services, exhibits, demonstrations, information and entertainment in a fun-filled day.

In the next issue of Senior Life, you are likely to see photos from the day’s events at the expo.

And of course, we have a full slate of stories of the kind we know you come to expect from Senior Life.

In this issue we’ll look at some health issues, Veterans Day events, what’s coming up for the holidays and much more.
