The 2009 Senior Boomer Event set for Friday, July 17 at the Gallatin Civic Center just got a little bigger with the announcement of Purity Dairies as the event’s headline sponsor.
“With the theme of the event being an ‘old fashioned ice cream social,’ we thought Purity Dairies would be a natural to headline our program,” said Norma Bixler, publisher of Mature Lifestyles Magazine, a sister publication of The Gallatin Newspaper and The Hendersonville Standard. They are owned by MainStreet Media which is also the parent company of The Wilson Post.
“The Purity Dairies Old Fashioned Ice Cream Social” will be an all day event running from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Gallatin Civic Center. Antique cars, informative booths, fun activities and live entertainment are planned for the day. Food service will be available and provided by local caterers from Larriviere’s On the Square.
“We’re excited about Purity coming on as our headline sponsor and we are also excited about our friends at Larriviere’s being our food service vendor. They do a great job with their restaurant and the senior boomers will love their food,” added Marjorie Lloyd, editor in chief of The Gallatin Newspaper.
“Purity plans on supplying the ice cream and we will supply the crowd,” Bixler added.
According to Bixler, “So far to date there are 46 booth participants or vendors planning on having a presence at the event with ample room to add more.”
She went on to say there is a wide range of booth participants each one having a “senior connection” to the boomer audience that will be in attendance.Booth participants include:
