The fourth annual Over 50 Fair returns to the Melville Marriott on Sunday, Sept. 29 from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The one-day expo is being organized as a celebration of life on Long Island for people over 50.
To make it even easier for attendees to participate in this year’s event, there will be free valet parking as well as free scooter rentals for those who need one, compliments of Patriot Mobility, Inc.
“The Over 50 Fair is part health and wellness fair, part conference and part activities and lifestyle expo,” said fair director, Barbara Kaplan, the East Hills resident who also organizes Long Island’s popular All Kids Fair every April. With 30 classes covering a variety of disciplines, there will be “something for everyone at the Over 50 Fair,” she added.
This year’s attendees will recognize some of the speakers from last year, while many are new to the Over 50 Fair. Classes will include two comedy shows, Zumba, social media, weight loss, bio-identical hormones, essential oils, and iPad apps.
Over 80 exhibitors will be participating, offering a broad spectrum of services and products relevant to baby boomers and seniors, including local medical and dental practices, financial experts, and education providers, plus weight loss, vitamins, in-home care, and even psychic readings. Meditation classes will take place all day.
Geraldine Puglia, a Deer Park resident who has attended all three previous fairs described last year’s event as “very informational and fun.”
The fair’s slogan, “60 is the new 50” summarizes the philosophy of the event’s organizer, that Americans are living longer and should seek to live life to its fullest.
“There are so many opportunities here on Long Island,” Kaplan said. “You just need to know where to look to find them. Many can be found at the Over 50 Fair.”
Free health screenings will be available, such as body fat analysis, blood pressure checks, and oxygen saturation.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their non-perishable food and cash donations for The INN (Interfaith Nutrition Network), a local non-profit, to exchange for raffle tickets for exciting and valuable prizes. Other non-profit organizations participating include the Lymphatic Research Foundation, SeniorNet at Family Service League-L.I., and the Long Island Alzheimer’s Foundation.
Rounding out the expo will be photo opportunities with three beauty queens, including Ms. New York Senior America 2013, Virginia Werner.
Admission tickets, which include access to all classes and exhibitors, are $6 online, $8 at the door, and free for Veterans. The Melville Marriott is located at 1350 Old Walt Whitman Rd., Melville off the Long
New Yorkers may or may not choose to vacation in the great state of South Dakota, but that was the destination for the lucky winners of the 40th anniversary contest at Ben’s Delicatessen Restaurant & Caterers.

It started at 6:30 p.m. and the pleasant summer evening, along with the familiar tunes, all contributed to a family-friendly event, one that highlighted the continued growth and success of the chamber itself.
