MARLBOROUGH – On April 18, dozens of senior citizens came to Assabet Valley Regional Vocational Technical High School for the 43rd annual conference.

State Sen. Jamie Eldridge (D-Marlborough), who hosted the event, said, “It was so great to have the full senior conference back.”

He touted some of the new programs and vendors, such as the Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism.

“We recognize that more and more seniors are active” and would like to see what the state has to offer, said Eldridge.

When not checking out the vendors and greeting visitors, Eldridge was listening to constituents’ concerns.

“I just picked up three new constituent cases,” he said.

Eldridge also thanked the staff and students at Assabet for providing the venue as well as breakfast and lunch.

The conference featured more than two dozen vendors, including New Horizons, Springwell and Bridges by Epoch. Attendees could also try chair yoga and Zumba, do a drop-in activity with Maynard ArtSpace, and check out programs on “Aging in Place” and “Grandparents Raising Grandchildren.”

As always, attendees could enter a raffle to win the “big chair” from Bouvier Pharmacy of Marlborough.

Music was provided by the Romeos Duo.

Eldridge represents the Middlesex and Worcester District, which includes Marlborough, Hudson and Southborough.
