3000 Seniors tooting ~ almost a festive suggestion
Last week Sandy UT saw the annual Seniors Expo at the Sandy Exhibition Center. It's a two day event providing excelent information, services, entertainment, interactive displays, and in many cases, an enjoyable outing.
In my mobile chair, I was in competition with eager Senior, skilled users of walking canes, wheel chairs and assorted mobility equipment. The event had height as well as depth with colorful balloon arches and silver, floating lettering announcing venue areas.
Candy, pens and writing blocks were common, sought after give aways. Fresh popcorn and cookies were in demand.
One Senior Living Facility was giving white signalling whistles. Demand exceeded supply on the first day. Carrington Court had taken 3,000 whistles with them ~ they had a winner. You could forget about "76 trombones".
Recipients just had to test their new possession, and test them they did.
Cardboard white nurses hat, skeletons, and even a wicker coffin displayed by a Funeral Home, were other effective, innovative oddities encouraging interaction. Tourism opportunities and handyman information and displays.offered peaceful diversion.
Next time, you might consider taking a Senior as your excuse to go. Some of us are already qualified by age.
ps ~ when I demonstrated my whistle for my wife at home, I was told to remove it to a far distant hill.
