DeLissio announces 7th annual free Senior Expo on Sept. 29

HARRISBURG, Sept. 16 – State Rep. Pam DeLissio invites constituents from the 194th Legislative District to her 7th annual free Senior Expo from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday, Sept. 29. This is a rain-or-shine event.

DeLissio is hosting her senior fair in collaboration with the Roxborough Memorial Hospital Nursing School’s Good Neighbor Day Health Fair. The event will take place on the grounds of the hospital, at 5800 Ridge Ave. The Senior Expo will be under the large white tent on the Rector Street parking lot.

“Seniors are active and vital members of the community, and I’m excited to be able to bring together a diverse group of state, county, and local government and not-for-profit agencies offering information and opportunities specifically of interest to older adults,” said DeLissio, D-Montgomery/Phila. “Folks will be introduced to organizations providing lifelong learning and volunteer opportunities, and to ways to stay or become engaged with the community in which we live, work and play.

“As in the past, I look forward to continuing to offer a diverse group of exhibitors at the expo to acknowledge seniors’ varied interests and needs.”

Representatives from the PA Department of Human Services, Visiting Nurses Association, Senior Law Center, PGW, PECO, and many other organizations will be available to provide information that older adults may find very helpful.

Additionally, DeLissio said that she is pleased to have organizations such as Kelly’s Cats attending that have furry friends looking for a happy home, Mt. Airy Learning Tree providing educational and recreational activities, Chestnut Hill College, Journey’s Way, the Roxborough YMCA, and representatives from the local civic associations in the 194th District, and more – all providing ways to remain active and involved.

“My goal is to make sure that our area’s older citizens are not only aware of the services available to them, but also have access to the community resources that continue to offer opportunities to be active and participate in the community,” DeLissio said. “Looking forward to seeing you there.”
