Chatham-Kent Senior Expo Planning Committee

On Friday, June 7, 2019, Chatham Kent will celebrate our older adult and senior residents at The 2019 Chatham Kent Senior Expo and Achievement Awards.

Karen Herman, Chairperson for this event, along with the Senior Expo planning committee (Elinor Mifflin, Kathryn Vanek, Barb Ferren), and the Blenheim Senior Centre, look forward to welcoming approximately 500 people, including 60 exhibitors to this year’s event. The main objective of this special date is to thank the many older adult residents for their volunteer contributions within our Chatham Kent communities.

To be nominated for an Achievement Award, Chatham Kent residents must be 55 years old or older and an active volunteer within our community. Nominations forms can be picked up
at CK Senior Centres, CK Municipal Centres, CK Libraries, and also available at
