Baker to Host Senior Expo Aug. 5

Senior citizens residing in the 68th District are invited

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - July 24, 2016

HARRISBURG – Senior citizens residing in the 68th District are invited to a Senior Expo hosted by Rep. Matt Baker (R-Tioga/Bradford/Potter) on Friday, Aug. 5, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Wellsboro Area High School, 225 Nichols St. in Wellsboro.

The event, which is expected to draw approximately 1,000 attendees, will feature more than 75 vendors from federal, state and county agencies; area businesses; and health organizations providing information and answering questions important to senior citizens.

“The senior expo is always a great event for area residents,” said Baker. “It is a time when older neighbors can catch up with one another while gathering helpful information important to folks their age. I look forward to seeing everyone again this year.”

The Pennsylvania mobile veterans outreach van will be available during the expo to answer questions, offer counseling and help veterans obtain assistance. In addition, flu shots will be administered by Weis Pharmacy to those who present their insurance card, and free hearing screenings will be performed by Dr. Richard Strauch. The Wellsboro Police Department will also be offering a drug take-back program in which individuals can bring in their outdated or no longer used prescription drugs for proper disposal.

Educational programs will include Attorney Rita Alexyn speaking about grandparent’s rights and David Shallcross from the Office of Attorney General presenting information on common scams and how to recognize them.

Admission to the expo is free, lunch and light refreshments will be served, door prizes will be awarded, and local musician Brandon Lusk will provide live music courtesy of Intermediate Unit 17. Free shuttle bus service will also be available from nearby parking lots around the school.

The event is being co-sponsored by the Elder Services Work Group of the Tioga County Partnership for Community Health.

For more information, contact Baker’s district offices at (570) 724-1390 in Wellsboro or (570) 297-3045 in Troy.
