The Chelsea Spring Expo held its thirteenth annual event at the Chelsea Senior Center on Apr. 13 from 10am to 3pm.

A chance to bring together local vendors, local businesses and organizations, non-profits, and crafters, there’s something for all ages with all booth spaces sold out.

Just inside the door was a bake sale and one was devoted to the kids with a kid zone. This year the Howell Nature Center provided a free wildlife encounter. There was also an area for farmers to sell their products and another for local vendors. Several local larger businesses set up shop in the gym. 

Bill O’Reilly, who will be taking over as Executive Director of the senior center on May. 1 was on hand to volunteer with the seniors, the seniors greeted those who arrived and ran many stations throughout the Expo. 

The event was sponsored by the St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea Hospital, United Methodist Retirement Communities, Chelsea Lumber Company, Chelsea State Bank, Edward Jones, Jiffy Mixes, Legacy Assisted Living Center, Silver Maples Retirement Neighborhood, Wellbridge of Pinckney, Cole Funeral Chapel, Comfort Keepers, Hopp Electric, Staffan Michell Funeral Home, the Chelsea School District, Story Point, and State Farm Insurance.
