Senior Health & Safety Fair
This year’s Senior Health & Safety Fair is on Wednesday, Oct. 13, beginning at 10 a.m. If you’re age 55+, this health fair is for you.
Guest speakers will offer short presentations on topics such as resources for caregivers and scams that target seniors. Participants can also get a flu shot, have their blood pressure checked and pick up a goody bag filled with local resources, emergency tips, utility information and fun giveaways! Look for more information in the Senior Center’s October newsletter.
Those wishing to receive their annual flu shot at the event are asked to register in advance. Call the Dick Eardley Senior Center at 208-608-7580.
