Nearly 1,000 residents from Nassau and Suffolk Counties came to the Freeport Recreation Center recently to participate in Senator Charles J. Fuschillo Jr.’s annual Golden Gathering.
Over 100 exhibitors from government and non-profit agencies provided information to residents about a variety of issues, including health and nutrition, insurance, public safety, and consumer protection. Residents were able to get free blood pressure, hearing, and chiropractic screenings, as well as no out of pocket cost flu & pneumonia vaccinations provided by NuHealth. Mammograms were also offered by NuHealth. Residents were also able to obtain or renew a passport through the Town of Hempstead’s Mobile Passport.
Entertainment was provided by students from the Freeport High School Select Chorale, the Freeport Community Chorale, and Ms. New York Senior America Virginia Werner.
"The Golden Gathering provides a host of different services all in one place. Whether it was free health screenings, information about programs, or other services, there was something for everyone to take advantage of,” said Senator Fuschillo (R-Merrick). “I’m pleased that so many individuals were able to participate in the program and utilize the resources that were offered.”
