Calling All Seniors: Ritchie to Host St. Lawrence County Health and Wellness Fair
Event to Take Place October 23rd in Ogdensburg
State Senator Patty Ritchie will offer area seniors tips for living healthy, active lifestyles at her annual St. Lawrence County Senior Health and Wellness Fair, taking place on Wednesday October 23rd at the Ogdensburg Oddfellows Hall.
The free event—which runs from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.—will feature dozens of local organizations, offering health screenings, giveaways, and flu shots as well as lunch and entertainment, both sponsored by Senator Ritchie. Those looking to receive a flu shot are reminded to bring their Medicare and insurance ID to the event.
“In the past two months, I have hosted more than 1,300 seniors at my Health and Wellness Fairs in Jefferson and Oswego Counties,” said Senator Ritchie.
“This event promises to be just as successful in giving our local seniors access to important information that can help them become healthier and improve their well-being.”
