Local law enforcement agencies are partnering to provide a senior-centered event to connect them with resources and support they may need.

The Williamsburg Police Department, James City County Police Department and Williamsburg-James City County Sheriff’s Office will host the Senior Halloween Spooktacular this year on Oct. 24.

Senior attendees will have access to services from a slew of vendors and services, including the AARP, Attorney General’s Office, Bureau of Insurance, Walgreens, Peninsula Agency on Aging, Sentara Hospital, Social Security Administration, CarFit and more, the departments announced in an event flyer on Facebook.

Vendors will offer some health services such as flu shots and blood pressure checks.

The spooktacular will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Stryker Center, 401 N. Boundary St.

The event is sponsored by Spring Arbor Senior Living, the Flats of Williamsburg and the Colonial Triad, which consists of the three law enforcement departments covering Williamsburg and James City County.
