     “We are so excited to have the opportunity to welcome seniors and the community to a day of fun and fellowship at our 2010 Senior Expo,” commented Pamela K. Matura, Executive Director of the AAA7.  “The Senior Expo has always served as a day for our seniors to learn more about their community, to share time with friends, and most importantly, to have fun.  We certainly hope to see many in our community come out to the Scioto County Fairgrounds on Friday, September 10 to celebrate our senior citizens with us.”
