Rep. Frank Farina is Hosting a Senior Fair this Thursday, May 21st

Join Rep. Frank Farina for his Senior Fair this Thursday, May 21!

I would like to invite you to join me for my Senior Fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Thursday, May 21st at the Dunmore Community Center, 1414 Monroe Avenue, Dunmore.

Dozens of local businesses and agencies will be there with important information for seniors.

We’ll have free health screenings and light refreshments.

Many seniors consider their health and financial well-being to be the most critical issues they face as they age. My fair will bring together a number of groups that can offer advice on many of those issues.

Among the safety issues to be aware of is elder abuse, which can be physical, emotional or even financial. You can also download a flier on senior safety produced by the Pennsylvania Attorney general.

If you are not a senior, please pass this information on to an older relative, friend or neighbor.

As always, if there is any way my staff or I may assist you, please contact me or drop by my offices at 1414 Monroe Ave., Dunmore or 423 Main St., Eynon.
