Please Note: 2021 Senior Citizens Expo – POSTPONED
Unfortunately, due to the uncertainty of the current pandemic and the decline in vendor participation as a result, Concord Township has decided to postpone the Senior Citizens Expo until next year.
We look forward to holding the event in 2022 with the full participation that our seniors have come to expect and enjoy. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope everyone will join us for a great Senior Expo in 2022!
