COLUMN: See you at my senior fair

— My eighth annual Senior Fair is now less than a month away. This free informational event for Central New York senior citizens will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 27 in the Horticulture Building at the New York State Fairgrounds. I am also happy to announce that we have secured a record number of exhibitors this year.

During my Senior Fair, senior citizens and their family members or caregivers will be able to gather valuable information about local programs and services. Resources will be available to seniors regarding healthcare, long-term care, transportation, recreation, fitness, safety and so much more. Local medical professionals will also be providing numerous free health screenings.

I understand that it is sometimes difficult to find the resources you are looking for, so I am bringing more than 80 vendors under one roof for your convenience. These local experts are ready and eager to help answer your various questions. Plus, you won’t want to miss the light refreshments, live entertainment and door prizes.

The response to last year’s Senior Fair was tremendous. I hope to see even more seniors this year. For more information on this event, visit nysenate.gov/senator/john-defrancisco.
