GIRARD – Rep. Parke Wentling (R-Crawford/Erie/Lawrence/Mercer) encourages senior citizens, their family members and caregivers to attend his fifth annual Senior Expo on Thursday, Oct. 3, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at St. John the Evangelist Parish Center, 1001 Main St. E., in Girard.

“The purpose of this annual expo is to help inform our seniors, and those who care for seniors, about the various services, activities and information available to them in our area,” Wentling said. “Residents are often unaware of the many programs and services available to seniors. Attendees will have the unique opportunity of having numerous vendors on hand to guide them through services.”

More than 70 vendors, offering a wide range of services geared toward senior citizens, will be on hand to share information and answer questions.

Vendors will include attorneys, vision and hearing specialists, podiatrists, estate and funeral planners, medical equipment specialists, hospice and home care providers, and many more. Representatives from government agencies and nonprofit organizations will also be in attendance.

Glucose screenings, foot problem screenings, hearing and ear wax screenings, unused prescription drug drop off and blood pressure checks are some of the services to be offered during the expo.

Flu and pneumonia, Hepatitis B, Shingles and Tdap shots will also be offered. Attendees who wish to be vaccinated are reminded they must bring their Medicare information and any insurance cards with them.

For more information, please contact Wentling’s district office toll-free at 1-855-249-2427.
