Senior Fairs Offer Valuable Information to Residents, Caregivers
8/6/2014
By Rep. Gary Day (R-Berks/Lehigh)

Each fall, senior citizens within the 187th District have one or two opportunities to come together in a single location to have their questions answered about a variety of public, nonprofit and private programs and services available to help them enjoy a better quality of life.

These events include the Senior Citizens Day on Sept. 18, which I sponsor along with North Whitehall Township, and my Senior Fair in Kutztown on Oct. 2. That Lehigh County event is specifically designated for residents of North Whitehall, South Whitehall and Upper Macungie townships and the Northwestern Lehigh area, while the Kutztown Senior Fair is open to any resident of the 187th District, along with family members and caregivers.

For your information, the 187th District currently comprises Maxatawny, Longswamp and Richmond townships, along with the boroughs of Kutztown, Topton and Lyons, in Berks County, along with Heidelberg, Lowhill, Lynn, North Whitehall, Upper Macungie and Weisenberg townships in Lehigh County. However, please note that these district lines will shift slightly on Dec. 1. Until then, I continue to represent everyone in the 187th.

As part of the North Whitehall Township Senior Citizens Day at the Schnecksville Fire Company social hall, I will have a Senior Information Fair from 8:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. During those hours, I will be on hand, along with my staff, to answer questions residents may have about legislation, state programs and services, and any help we can offer in cutting through bureaucratic red tape. The social hall is located at 4550 Old Packhouse Road, Schnecksville.

In the Berks County portion of the district, I am inviting all caregivers and residents age 55 and older who live in the 187th Legislative District to my fifth annual Senior Fair, to be held from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 2, at the Kutztown Fire Company, located at 310 Noble St. in Kutztown.

Our senior fair is a great informational event where older residents can come to one convenient place to learn more about various programs and services offered by local, state and federal governments as well as private agencies. With the wide variety of programs and services available to older Pennsylvanians, this event will help to give the appropriate information regarding eligibility or how a particular program operates.

Like in years past, we’ve designed this expo with the local senior citizen in mind. From health care and nutrition information to financial planning, more than 40 different exhibitors are expected. The best part is that this wealth of information is located under one roof.

At this location, we will offer door prizes, free flu shots, free refreshments, free blood pressure checks and free balance screenings.

Both events are free and no one needs to register in advance.

For more information, contact my district office in New Tripoli at (610) 760-7082.
My staff and I always enjoy meeting with local seniors and their families during the Senior Fair and I hope to see all of you there!
