HARRISBURG, Sept. 24 – Older residents are invited to join state Rep. Gerald Mullery for the upcoming 2019 Luzerne County Senior Expo.

The free event will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 3 at Wyoming Valley Mall in Wilkes-Barre.

“This is a great opportunity for seniors to pick up information in one place regarding a variety of local, state and federal programs that can help them live healthier and more productive lives,” said Mullery, D-Luzerne. “I look forward to this every year because it lets me connect face-to-face with so many people and discuss issues that are important to them.”

There will be free health screenings and exhibits, flu shots (with insurance card) and information on Social Security, health care and insurance, legal and fraud protection, exercise and nutrition and more.

Other co-sponsors of the expo are state Rep. Aaron Kaufer and state Sens. Lisa Baker and John Yudichak.
