HARRISBURG – Senior citizens residing in the 183rd Legislative District are invited to Rep. Zach Mako’s (R-Lehigh/Northampton) third annual Senior Expo on Friday, Sept. 13, 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.
“This event is always very popular and provides valuable information,” Mako said. “Many times seniors, family members or their caregivers are unsure of resources and opportunities available to assist older residents. This expo brings a variety of resources together all in one place. I encourage everyone to come, whether you attended previously or not.”
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.
In addition, CarFit will again be on hand. This free, interactive and educational program is 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 RepMako.com
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.
