Bizzarro to host Senior Fair & Older Living Expo Sept. 27

Free event will feature exhibitors, flu shots, health screenings, door prizes

ERIE, Sept. 23 – Area seniors will want to mark their calendars for the fifth annual Senior Fair and Older Living Expo co-hosted by state Rep. Ryan Bizzarro, D-Erie, and state Sen. Michele Brooks, R-Crawford/Mercer/Erie/Warren.

The free event will be held from 10 a.m. to noon on Friday, Sept. 27 at the Edinboro Volunteer Fire Department, 125 Meadville St., in Edinboro.

Bizzarro said the fair is extremely popular each year because it offers something for everyone.

“Seniors love our fair because it offers a one-stop-shop experience,” Bizzarro said. “Visitors can get a flu shot and free health screening; pick up brochures and applications for state programs; and browse exhibits by local vendors offering services on financial planning, housing, transportation and dozens of other resources important to older adults. Staff will be available, as well, to answer questions.”

Bizzarro added that there will also be door prizes and light refreshments.
