2. Working for a Living: The 50+ Employment Expo takes place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center, 5701 Marinelli Rd, Rockville. The keynote speaker will be Leon Harris. For more information, visit here. And for a list of exhibitors, visit here.

4. Don’t Be Cruel: The Montgomery County Council Public Safety Committee considers new anti-cruelty regulations for pets at its 10 a.m. meeting in the Third Floor Conference Room of the County Office Building.
