The fair will consist of speakers, workshops, clinics and exhibitors with the goal of educating and encouraging adult, seniors and caregivers "to find the information and resources they need to enhance their lives."
The keynote speaker, scheduled for 9 a.m. will be Connecticut’s own Lynn McPhelimy. She has been featured on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and NBC’s “Today" show. She is a nationally recognized organizer, motivational speaker and author of the best seller “In the Checklist of Life: A Working Book to Help You Live and Leave This Life.” McPhelimy will provide warm and funny inspiration, tips and techniques to organize lives.
One question she typically presents is:

Hour-long workshop topics include: health challenge solutions, understanding probate court, social security, safety in the home, holistic health, paying for nursing home care, housing options for seniors, Medicare and more.
The fair is open to all. Admission to the fair is free.
