GREENVILLE – Sen. Michele Brooks (R-50) invites seniors and caregivers to a Senior Expo on Friday, Sept. 15, at Greenville Alliance Church, 63 Conneaut Lake Road, from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
“This Expo is always a welcome opportunity for me to meet with seniors personally and connect them with the experts and information that will allow them to lead safer, healthier and more fulfilling lives,” Brooks said. “By bringing these experts together under one roof, we can maximize the convenience for seniors and give them a chance to meet friends in a central location for an event that is not only informative, but fun.”
New this year at the expo, seniors will have the opportunity to have a bone density test free of charge. In addition, guests will find a wealth of information and health services provided by state government, as well as local nonprofit and community groups in the area.
Flu shots will be available to everyone, with the VA Butler Health Care System offering them to veterans and a flu shot provider administering the vaccine to all others who are interested. For those planning to receive a flu shot or vaccine, please bring your Medicare, VA or insurance card.
The Veterans of the Vietnam War Post 52 will be accepting snacks and personal care items for the troops overseas. Items such as eye drops, lip balm, small packs of tissues, toothpaste, toothbrushes, snack crackers, Pringles and beef jerky are always welcome. Also, we will be signing Christmas cards again this year to mail to the troops.
Refreshments, free giveaways and door prizes will be offered at the Expo.
There is no need to RSVP for this event. For additional information, please call 724-588-8911. Guests are also invited to visit her website at www.senatorbrooks.com and her Facebook page at Facebook.com/senatormichelebrooks.
