Nearly 80 exhibitors have registered to participate in Rep. Tina Pickett’s (R-Bradford / Sullivan / Susquehanna) 19th annual Senior Expo, set for Friday, June 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Athens Lynch-Bustin Elementary School.
“I encourage all seniors, their family members and caregivers to make plans to join us and learn about the various services available to them in our area,” said Pickett. “This information can sometimes be difficult to obtain. Our expo makes it easier and more convenient by bringing service providers and seniors together at the same time, under one roof.”
Information will be provided on health care, insurance, nutrition and exercise, financial planning, fraud protection, government services, veterans benefits and more. Refreshments will also be offered.
At 11:30 a.m., Pickett will hold a town hall meeting in the school’s cafeteria to provide an update on state budget negotiations and discuss her legislative priorities during the current session.
The school, which is air-conditioned, is located at 253 Pennsylvania Ave. in Athens. From Route 220, take the second Athens Business Exit to Pine Street. Signs will be posted directing participants to school parking. Shuttle service will be provided from the school’s parking lot to the building’s front door.
Anyone with questions about the expo can contact Pickett’s Towanda office at (570) 265-3124 or her Sayre office at (570) 888-9011. To prepare for the Expo, her district offices will be closed all day on Thursday, June 20.
