SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - St. Joseph's/Candler wants to ensure seniors are living smart.

Tuesday event at the Armstrong Center featured everything from art classes to cooking and travel options. There was also a lot of information and health screenings.

Organizers say this annual event is all about keeping seniors active.

Jenny Koch, of St. Joseph's/Candler Smart Senior, said that seniors are living so much longer.

"We don't want to sit at home. It's not like it used to be when you retire and you don't do anything now. You retire to fill a calendar and stay active," she said.
