– Carbon County seniors are encouraged to join Rep. Doyle Heffley (R-Carbon) and Sen. Dave Argall (R- Schuylkill/Carbon) at their Senior Citizens Expo on Wednesday, Sept. 6, in Lehighton.
The free event will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Franklin Township Volunteer Fire Co., 2440 Fairyland Road
. A free lunch will also be served.
“Our Senior Expo is a one-stop shop for local senior citizens and their caregivers to have access to many businesses and services available to them in our area,” Heffley said. “Information can sometimes be difficult to find. Our expo showcases many programs and services for seniors and allows them to directly access information by speaking with representatives from local, state and federal agencies.”
“There’s no better place to go if you’re looking for information about senior programs,” said Argall. “We’ll have representatives from dozens of services to answer any question you may have.”
The expo will feature over 50 exhibitors from the Carbon County area that will present information on their programs and services. In addition, a prescription drug drop-off box will be on-site for seniors to dispose of their unwanted or expired medications.
The legislators will also be collecting non-perishable food items during the expo to donate to a local food bank and ask everyone who attends to consider bringing a donation.
For more information, contact Heffley’s office at 610-377-6363 or Argall’s office at 570-773-0891.
