Thousands of older adults who flocked to last year's Senior Celebration Day will once again enjoy the fourhour event in their honor on Wednesday, May 11. This year's 23rd Senior Celebration Day is 11:15 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. at the Arlington Park Racecourse.
Older adults will have access to free services including health screenings and testing. Among them: blood pressure, bone density, glaucoma, speech and hearing and memory. The AsktheDoctors panel by Northwest Community Hospital is back, with more geriatrics specialists.
Older adults can also renew their driver's license or obtain stateissued IDs, as the Secretary of State will be among over 60 exhibitors. In addition, the Northwest Suburban Bar Association will have attorneys to answer legal questions.
The annual event is organized by a committee of more than 20 staff members from organizations throughout the Northwest suburbs.
Arlington Park has confirmed that older adults will be able to purchase a discounted combo meal for $5, a special running just for them.
Visitors can also meet their local government officials, participate in a raffle drawing and enjoy the entertainment.
Everyone is required to have a ticket to attend the event. Free tickets have been made available through various agencies, but if you still need one, call District 214 Community Education at (847) 718-7700 or visit www.ce214.org.
