Keynote Speaker (MD Only)

The Silver Spring Expo will feature a captivating “Keynote Conversation” between the Beacon’s publisher and veteran journalist, radio host and TV news anchor, Tony Perkins, renowned for his work with NBC4 and MAJIC 102.3.

Volunteer Fair

In Springfield, the Beacon is proud to partner with the Fairfax County “Ventures into Volunteering” fair, an annual event showcasing multiple government agencies and nonprofits that offer exciting volunteer opportunities and promote an engaged lifestyle.

Health Screenings and Vaccines

Ensuring the health and well-being of attendees is also a top priority. The Expos will provide a number of important vaccines, including regular flu, high-dose flu, Shingrix (shingles), pneumonia, tetanus, and the new Covid booster (as available). For those with a Medicare card or insurance, flu and Covid vaccines will be free, while others may require a co-pay.

To encourage proactive health management, free health screenings for blood pressure, glaucoma, blood glucose and cholesterol will also be offered.
