HARRISBURG – Area senior citizens residing in the 183rd Legislative District are invited to Rep. Zach Mako’s (R-Lehigh/Northampton) second annual Senior Expo on Friday, Sept. 14, at Bethany Wesleyan Church in Cherryville.

The expo is free to attend and will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The church is located at 675 Blue Mountain Drive, Cherryville.

“Last year’s expo was very well attended, and participants gathered a lot of good information,” Mako said. “I encourage everyone to come, whether you attended last year or not. This event is especially helpful to family members and caregivers of seniors. Many times people are unaware of resources and opportunities available to seniors.”

Attendees will have the opportunity to visit with more than 75 local, state and federal agencies and organizations offering information on programs and services available to seniors. Free flu shots will be available, assuming no manufacturing delays. Free health screenings, including vision, balance and blood pressure, also will be offered.

The Pennsylvania Mobile Veterans Service Van will be present to assist veterans. Also on hand will be CarFit, a free, interactive and educational program designed to improve older driver safety by providing information on minor adjustments that can help a senior’s vehicle “fit” better.

For more information, contact Mako’s offices at (610) 502-2701 or (610) 760-9805, or visit his website at

The 183rd District includes South Whitehall (part), Washington and Whitehall (part) townships and Slatington Borough in Lehigh County. It also consists of Allen, Lehigh and Moore (part) townships, and North Catasauqua, Northampton and Walnutport boroughs in Northampton County.
