Record turnout for Bizzarro’s 5th annual senior fair

ERIE, Aug. 30 -- State Rep. Ryan A. Bizzarro, D-Erie, received a great turnout for his fifth annual free Senior Fair & Older Living Expo Monday at the Tom Ridge Environmental Center.

“I am so proud to say we had at least 1,500 people attend the event,” Bizzarro said. “It just keeps growing and growing each year.”

Dozens of local and state organizations and exhibitors provided health screenings, flu shots, veterans’ benefits information and other useful information for older residents.

“There are resources offered for seniors that many of them may not even be aware of – and they learn about them for the first time at our expo,” Bizzarro explained. “Informing members of my community about important opportunities is what matters most to me.”

Bizzarro will be hosting a similar event Friday, Sept. 15 at Our Lady of Lake Church in Edinboro from 10 a.m. until noon.
