McLean County Senior Expo

 

The 11th Annual McLean County Senior Expo, Scheduled For Wednesday, September 5th From 9:00 am to 1:30 pm, Returns to Bloomington's Interstate Center!

Calvert & Metzler Memorial Home is excited to announce that the McLean County Senior Expo will return to the expansive Interstate Center and open its doors to over 80 vendors and 1,200 senior adult visitors on Wednesday, September 5th, starting at 9:00 am.  The senior-friendly, handicap accessible Interstate Center provides visitors and vendors ample parking, comfortable space and voluminous seating on a single level.  Once again, the McLean County Senior Expo is offering 1,000+ senior visitors free parking and shuttle service to the door, free admission, free games and contests, free Taste of the Expo food sampling and Carl’s Ice Cream Social, free prize giveaways that will continue during the day, and so much more.  Returning to this year’s event will be the Steak N Shake Classic Car Show, Heartland Bank and Trust Company Expo Bingo and Money Seat Seminars, Oglesby’s Photographic Arts Photo Booth, Silent Bingo, and the Expo’s newest offering, “Ticket To Win It”.  The Calvert Cares Community Food Drive is again being offered, and every vendor or visitor who brings a non-perishable food item(s) will receive a Denny’s Doughnuts and Bakery free doughnut coupon, an extra “Ticket To Win It”, and entry into a $250 cash giveaway.  Event Coordinator and Calvert Funeral Homes Public Relations Director Chad Sparks was thrilled with last year’s event, and admitted that planning for the 2018 Expo had begun as early as last November.  Said Sparks, “Our slogan, ‘Calvert cares about your family, Calvert cares about our community’ allows us no time to rest from our labors, and we see the tremendous responsibility to give back to both family and community daily.  This event accomplishes that”.  Because the McLean County Senior Expo has sold out vendor space very year of its existence, interested businesses and organizations who wish to be vendors at the 2018 McLean County Senior Expo are encouraged to contact Event Coordinator Chad Sparks as soon as possible.  He can be reached at either (309) 827-7577 or at csparks@calvertmemorial.com.  With this exciting event fast approaching, the Calvert & Metzler Memorial Home staff and Expo volunteers encourage you to join with them in counting down the days to this much-anticipated and massively-attended event.

 


 


The Calvert Cares Community Food Drive "Feeds the Needs" of McLean County

70+ McLean County food pantries will reap the rewards of this great community event!

In 1929 in the small, rural town of Clinton, Illinois, the Calvert name became forever linked with quality, compassionate funeral service and community commitment in the funeral industry.  Almost 75 years later, this family-owned company expanded its "family-first" service to Bloomington, Illinois, where their priority of family and community became even more apparent.  In an effort to provide for our communities and the many needs associated with its families, Calvert & Metzler Memorial Home and its massive McLean County Senior Expo created an event to feed the needs of these entities.  As part of the Calvert Cares Initiative, where “Calvert cares for your family and Calvert cares for our community”, Calvert & Metzler Memorial Home will once again be hosting the Calvert Cares Community Food Drive, an event to benefit the 70+ McLean County food pantries and Midwest Food Bank.

On Wednesday, September 5th at the Calvert & Metzler Memorial Home McLean County Senior Expo at Bloomington's Interstate Center (located at the McLean County Fairgrounds), the Calvert Cares Community Food Drive will utilize the efforts of all Calvert & Metzler Memorial Home McLean County Senior Expo sponsors, vendors, and visitors to gather food for our many McLean County food pantries. 

Each individual that brings a non-perishable food item(s) to the McLean County Senior Expo will receive a Denny’s Doughnuts and Bakery free doughnut coupon and will be entered into a cash drawing.  Collectively, we can impact our communities by feeding the hungry and helping the needy.  We hope that you will join us in this charitable outreach!
