CASPIAN - Nearly 150 people gathered at the Iron County Historical Museum in Caspian Thursday to attend The Daily News Senior Expo.
"It was a big success and a nice day for everyone involved - from the attendees, speakers, and people associated with the museum. We saw some people returning from last year's expo, but also a lot of new faces," said Daily News Advertising Director Corky Deroeck.
This was a free event for senior citizens in Iron County with each attendee receiving a goody bag.

And for those staying to the end of the expo, there were a total of $350 in door prizes given away from The Daily News.
There were five informative speakers featured during the afternoon event and a free hot lunch by Dabeck Catering provided to the seniors by The Daily News.
"The museum was a wonderful setting for the Senior Expo and the attendance this year was way up," Deroeck added. "The crowd was very attentive and the speakers were excellent."
Bill Leonoff, museum manager, agreed. "It was a great day for this event and the largest group that we've hosted here at the museum," he said.
Although the museum was closed for the season, the museum staff stayed after the expo concluded to provide tours for the seniors wanting to see the various museum buildings.
