CARBONDALE – State Rep. Patrick Windhorst, State Rep. Paul Jacobs, State Sen. Terri Bryant, and State Sen. Dale Fowler are teaming up to provide district residents with a free senior citizens health and wellness fair.
It will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 24 from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Carbondale Civic Center on South Illinois Avenue.
Several senior service agencies will be there to provide literature, helpful guides, and other resources from a variety of state, county, and local agencies. General Assembly staff members will be on-hand to assist constituents with their concerns regarding state government. Those who attend are encouraged to sign up for a chance to win a door prize. The fair is free of charge.
“This is a great opportunity for senior residents to learn more about the resources available in our area and have a good time while doing it,” Rep. Windhorst said. “I look forward to visiting with those that are able to attend and would like to thank all of the great community partners that help make these events possible.”
“I am proud to co-sponsor this free senior citizen health fair along with my colleagues,” Rep. Jacobs said. “Senior citizens who attend can have their blood pressure checked, pick up useful information from healthcare and elder care providers, check for unclaimed property that the state may be holding for them, and enjoy coffee, donuts and fruit free of charge.”
