Helm to Host Senior Expo in Halifax on October 6
Expo to feature three programs for first time

HARRISBURG – In her continuing effort to keep older residents informed about programs and services that improve the quality of their lives, Rep. Sue Helm (R-Dauphin/Lebanon) is once again hosting her annual Senior Expo in northern Dauphin County.

The free event will take place on Thursday, October 6, 2016, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Halifax Area Ambulance and Rescue Association Building, 31 Bunker Hill Road in Halifax.

“Like those I’ve hosted in the past, this event will provide seniors with information about the programs and services available in our area to help them lead more active and productive lives,” Helm said. “My staff and I will also be available to discuss any state-related issue or concern. I encourage all older residents, their family members and caregivers to attend.”

Three programs will be offered at the expo for the first time. Seniors will be able to safely and properly dispose of any unused or expired medications in a drop off box.

In addition, attendees are invited to bring non-perishable food items for donation to the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank.

Finally, flu shots will be available to those with accepted insurance. The cost of the immunization is $30 without an insurance card.

Helm’s Senior Expo will feature dozens of exhibitors from nonprofit agencies; local, state and federal governments; and area businesses that will provide information on programs and services available to older Pennsylvanians on a wide range of topics, including health care, insurance, nutrition and exercise, fire safety, financial planning, fraud protection, government, hunting and fishing, and personal safety.

Refreshments and door prizes will be offered. Winners of the door prizes must be present to win.
