Shaw Air Force Base in Sumter will host a family wellness and resiliency expo from 3-7 p.m. Friday at its Airman and Family Readiness Center.

The event is open to all Shaw active-duty, Guard and reserve service members as well as Department of Defense civilians and retired members and their families.
Special guests include Keisha Bolden, department of employment workforce representative, the Highhills Elementary school choir and many other representatives from base and local agencies.
