|SPRING FLING is the largest event in Butler County focused on seniors and their caregivers. Spring Fling is always a great way to have fun while learning about the services, trends, and opportunities for today's older adults and caregivers. The fair has not been possible since 2019 due to Covid concerns and restrictions. The Butler County Department on Aging is thrilled to have Spring Fling back in 2023, and are looking forward to another successful year.|
