Hundreds come to Chandler Senior Expo


CHANDLER — Hundreds of visitors came to Sun Lakes Country Club on Wednesday for an Independent Newsmedia event.

The club was the location for INI’s Chandler Senior Expo. Local and national vendors brought samples and displays for a comprehensive range of senior products and services.

Tim Boyles and Mary Ellen Meslar of Weichert-Courtney Valleywide talked real estate in their first outing at an INI Senior Expo.

“This event allows us to talk about all kinds of properties and real estate issues that are on seniors’ minds,” Boyles said. “And, mostly, people who showed up today were appreciative and conversed with us.”

Mike Miller of Phoenix ER & Medical Hospital said visitors were inquisitive about his facility and unique business model.

Julie Martin of Farmers Insurance said she had some “great conversations” with several visitors.

Barb Whittenburg of Sun Lakes was one of Wednesday’s visitors and is a Sun Lakes resident.

She said she heard about the Expo at a club meeting and was reminded of it by neighborhood signs that were up on the day of the event.

Whittenburg said she was pleasantly surprised to be able to have a conversation with a realtor at the Expo.

“I like going to these things because while you know basically what a senior expo is, you never know exactly what you’ll find each time,” she said.

Many had giveaways such as free samples, health and wellness screenings and door prize drawings.
