As you probably are aware, I will be retiring from the State Senate at the end of the year, so it’s bittersweet that I announce I will be holding my 14th and final Senior Fair. This annual event is free to Central New York senior citizens, and their caregivers, and will be held on Tuesday, September 25th from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Horticulture Building at the New York State Fairgrounds.
During the event, senior citizens will have the opportunity to speak directly with state and local representatives and service providers about various issues including healthcare, long-term care, transportation, recreation, housing, and the like. In addition, healthcare professionals will be on hand to provide free screenings concerning blood pressure, hearing and more. Seniors may also enjoy some light refreshments, live musical entertainment and fun door prizes.
As your State Senator, it has been my great pleasure to hold this annual Senior Fair over the past 14 years with the mission of helping seniors find the important resources they need to enrich their lives. I expect this year’s Senior Fair to be the largest one yet, with more than 100 exhibitors, all under one roof.
So mark your calendars for my final Senior Fair to be held on September 25th from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the State Fairgrounds. For more information, please feel free to call my district office at 315-428-7632. I hope to see you there!
