Mako to host second senior expo
Area senior citizens residing in the 183rd Legislative District are invited to state Rep. Zach Mako’s second annual Senior Expo on Friday at Bethany Wesleyan Church in Cherryville.
The expo is free to attend and will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The church is located at 675 Blue Mountain Drive, Cherryville.
“Last year’s expo was very well-attended, and participants gathered a lot of good information,” said Mako, R-Lehigh/Northampton. “I encourage everyone to come, whether you attended last year or not. This event is especially helpful to family members and caregivers of seniors. Many times, people are unaware of resources and opportunities available to seniors.”
Attendees will have the opportunity to visit with more than 75 local, state and federal agencies and organizations offering information on programs and services available to seniors. Free flu shots will be available, assuming no manufacturing delays. Free health screenings, including vision, balance and blood pressure, also will be offered.
The Pennsylvania Mobile Veterans Service Van will be present to assist veterans. Also on hand will be CarFit, a free, interactive and educational program designed to improve older driver safety by providing information on minor adjustments that can help a senior’s vehicle “fit” better.
