Display booths showed off different talents from flower arrangements, resin work, and sewing, to essential oils and watercolor painting. Some seniors displayed businesses or causes they have worked with; for example, Just Serve officers coordinate service efforts with the East Idaho JustServe chapter and the team for the group Poky for Parky's run a support group for those affected by Parkinson's.
The event was focused around bringing the community together and helping seniors reconnect with others.
