50 Plus Expo reaches hundreds

| November 20, 2015

DSC_0001COSHOCTON – The Coshocton County Veterans Service Commission was one of more than 30 different vendors at the 50 Plus Expo. Pictured visiting with some of the hundreds of people who attended the event are Jim Barstow, Coshocton County Veterans Service Officer, and Patty Dilly, office assistant.

The event was held Nov. 19 at Coshocton Village Inn & Suites and organized by WTNS Radio.

“We’ve been doing this for 21 years,” said Bruce Wallace, owner of the radio station. “It’s a way to help get our advertisers showcased. Some of them like AAA aren’t places that you just stop by so it helps get them exposure that they wouldn’t get if they were just in their office today.”

This is the first time Anne Randles had setup there to share information about Coshocton County Job and Family Services Adult Protective Services, which aims to prevent the abuse, neglect or exploitation of people age 60 and older.

“The turnout today has been great,” she said. “We’ve reached a lot of people and that’s our whole goal.”
