Senior citizens along with anyone who might have questions on aging gathered at the Marshall Town Center Tuesday afternoon for the Times-Republican's Sixth Annual Senior Expo.
Over 100 people turned out for this year's event, and Desiree Tacconi, T-R assistant marketing director, said the crowd was great and everything fell right into place.
"The turn-out is great, and the vendors seemed to be very pleased," Tacconi said.

This is the second year the event has been held at the Marshall Town Center and it featured 17 vendors along with five speakers and bingo which, Tacconi said, is always a huge hit among the expo-goers.
"The mall has been a great partner to work with and everything went really smoothly," Tacconi said.
Pat Adkins, of Marshalltown, has been coming to the expo for the past three years and she said that it's always a great place to come for information and everyone seems to be very helpful.
"It's always really great coming and getting all the information I need," Adkins said.
Tacconi said that the event couldn't have turned out any better and she's already looking forward to next year.
"It's been perfect," Tacconi said.
