Kingston, October 12, 2017 − Senator John Yudichak (D-14), Senator Lisa Baker (R-20), Representative Aaron Kaufer (R-120), and Representative Gerald Mullery (D-119) hosted the 2017 Luzerne County Senior Expo at the Kingston Armory today.
Nearly 1,000 seniors attended the event which featured local, state and federal agencies, and other local organizations that provide vital services to area seniors. In addition, attendees were treated to free health screenings and flu shots.
“Every year I look forward to welcoming our area seniors to the Senior Expo. Whether they are here to learn about programs that can assist and protect them, or they are here to get health screenings or their flu shot, we’re glad we can help them out,” said Senator Yudichak.
“There are so many great programs available to help our seniors,” Senator Baker said. “People were lined up before the doors even opened. They told us they appreciate the chance to gather information all under one roof.”
“It is great that our seniors have this opportunity today to connect with organizations that stand ready to help them,” said Representative Kaufer. “It’s great to see so much support for our seniors in Luzerne County.”
Many of the area seniors attending the Expo brought non-perishable food items that were distributed to the local food bank.
