Community Events

Info Expo 2010

Each fall, the Beacon presents 50+Expo events in Washington's Maryland and Virginia suburbs. In 2016, we will have a 50+ Expo at the Silver Spring Civic Center in Silver Spring, MD on September 11 from noon to 4 pm.  Also, we will hold a 50+ Expo at Springfield Town Center in Springfield, VA on September 25 from noon to 4 pm.

These free public programs attract thousands of visitors to obtain health screenings, pick up information from government agencies, nonprofit organizations, employers and local businesses, hear experts speak on a variety of subjects, obtain computer education, and enjoy live entertainment.

In addition, the Beacon regularly sponsors, co-sponsors or supports other community programs, often in partnership with local Area Agencies on Aging and non-profit organizations. These include the Path of Achievement Awards, Law Day, the Older Worker Expo, centenarians’ celebrations, candidates’ forums and many other programs and events.
