Publisher and founder Betsy Bean says about 30 businesses will have the opportunity to showcase their products and services.

In addition to exhibitors, other activities will include health screenings, “My Aging Face” photography exhibit, music, line dancing, book signings and an array of door prizes. The first 100 attendees will receive a $10 gift certificate from Cofer’s Home & Garden Showplace.
