"The Golden Gathering is a wonderful opportunity for seniors to meet in a central location and have access to a large variety of useful information and services," said Senator Steve Saland. "I know that many seniors look forward to attending the Gathering and this year promises to be as informative and entertaining as years past."
The Gathering will host approximately 100 exhibitors and include numerous health screenings such as hearing and glaucoma screening, anxiety and depression screening and blood pressure screening.
