State Sen. Christine Radogno (R-Lemont) and State Rep. Jim Durkin (R- Western Springs) are hosting a free Senior Fair on Wed., Aug. 27 featuring approximately 45 local and state participants.

The event will be held on Wed., August 27 from 9 a.m. to Noon at the Lemont Park District’s CORE Fitness Center at 16028 127th Street in Lemont.

“We are committed to helping our constituents find access to local and state services that will help improve their health and financial security,” said Sen. Radogno. “This year’s fair offers seniors a great opportunity to speak with dozens of health and safety providers and state agency representatives, while also providing free health screenings and a wide range of informational brochures.”

Refreshments will be provided, and guests can take advantage of free health screenings to check blood sugar, hearing, thermal posture, and blood pressure. Also, flu shots will be available to seniors for free with Medicare B, or for a cost of $25.99. Information will be available on a variety of topics including transportation and assisted living options, home and Internet safety, and financial security—including how to save money on utilities.

“Come out to our annual senior fair. It’s a great event for seniors and their families.
