OWENSBORO, Ky. (WEHT) — The 20th Annual “Senior Day Out” is Thursday, from 8:30 a.m. to noon at Owensboro’s Towne Square Mall.

The event provides valuable information to help equip seniors in recognizing fraud and empowers them to avoid falling prey to scams targeting them.

The ‘Day Out’ also provides an opportunity for local businesses to interact with hundreds of seniors.

The serious topics are balanced with entertainment provided by musical guests, and attendees will have the opportunity to interact in some fun games, testing their scam-prevention knowledge.

Melissa Polites, Union County Aging Coordinator states, “TRIAD can make a difference in the lives of seniors by building strong relationships with law enforcement, keeping both seniors and those who serve them abreast of current fraud and scam trends, and equipping seniors to take action when faced with fraud and other dangers.”

‘Senior Day Out’ is an event of the Green River Regional TRIAD, a group consisting of local law enforcement, senior service agencies, and older adults who work together to reduce criminal victimization of the elderly.
