– Nearly 90 exhibitors have registered to participate in Rep. Tina Pickett’s (R-Bradford/Sullivan/Susquehanna) 18th annual Senior Expo, set for Friday, June 15, at the Athens Lynch-Bustin Elementary School, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
“We have set a record for exhibitor attendance for this year’s Expo, and I’m excited at the wide range of displays, informational booths and activities we’ll have for senior citizens and their guests,” said Pickett. “I believe this Expo, as have those we’ve hosted in years past, will have something for everyone.”
Nearly 90 exhibitors are expected to offer information on health care, insurance, nutrition and exercise, financial planning, fraud protection, government services and veterans benefits.
At 11:30 a.m., Pickett will hold her town hall meeting in the school’s cafeteria to update seniors, their families and caregivers about state budget negotiations and many other important legislative action items accomplished during the spring session.
Refreshments will be offered, and the school is air conditioned for seniors’ comfort.
The Bradford County Sheriff’s Office is sponsoring the prescription drug take-back drop-off, and North Central Sight Services will have an on-site shredder to safely destroy documents containing personal and sensitive information, such as credit card statements, utility bills and items with Social Security and account numbers. This service is for residents only, not for businesses.
The school 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.
