Senior Information Fair in 2014 will be held at the downtown library in Fort Wayne and happen on September 18 from 9:00 to 3:00 p.m.
SIF 2013 was a huge success! We had maximum attendance at our speaker sessions, almost doubled the number performed for several health screenings, and exhibitors shared information with almost 2,000 people.
We are honored that we receive so much support for this event from the community and that we have such a terrific group of volunteers.
If you have 5 years or more experience in digital advertising layout and design, contact Lisa Bordner, Chair for SIF to learn how you can volunteer with this wonderful group. 260.421.1375
Invitations to exhibit at SIF 2014 will be mailed in mid May. Stay turned for more information!
