Heart of Seniors Event Set for Feb. 15

The Heart of Seniors Expo & Fashion Show, hosted by the Senior Coalition, will be held on Thursday, February 15, at the Visalia Wyndham Hotel, 9000 W. Airport Dr., Visalia.

The event will include a vital resource fair with vendors, a fashion show – featuring senior models escorted by American Ambulance team members – and a luncheon.

The resource fair opens at 9 a.m., with the program beginning at 10:30 a.m. Tickets are $10 per person and includes lunch. Early registration is recommended as seating is limited and the event is again expected to sell out.

"Now that we are over a year out of COVID, it's good to get together again," said Stefani Salierno, event chair and Senior Coalition president.

The program, which will include a showcase of the latest in fashion for the mature woman, will feature keynote speaker Cynthia B. Johnson, professor of communication and psychology at COS, as well as division chair of language and communication studies.

Her presentation will be "Strengthening the Mind," which will focus on the cognitive approach of how to facilitate more internal power.

"Valentine's Day just would not be the same without the Heart of Seniors event," said Staci Correia, treasurer of the event. "It has become a tradition for all of us. The fact that we can bring all of these community services together under one roof and share how they can help our local seniors is just amazing, and to hear first-hand from our seniors how much they enjoy coming every year is worth all the time and effort."
