Senator McCarter’s Senior Fair at Keneseth Israel:
The July 4th holiday is just around the corner, which means we’re drawing closer to that other mark-your-summertime-calendar event: My seventh annual Senior Fair, which will be held this year from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 29 at Reform Congregation Keneseth Israel, 8339 Old York Rd., Elkins Park, 19027. Don’t forget to RSVP!
Nearly 100 exhibitors — including representatives from federal, state, county and local agencies such as AARP, Transnet, and the Aging and Adult Services and Veterans Affairs offices of Montgomery County as well as non-government exhibitors — will be there to offer information on health care, educational and volunteer opportunities, REAL ID, prescription-drug plans, identity theft, unclaimed property and much more.
Seniors can also apply for SEPTA Key Senior Photo ID cards (with a state license or state non-driver’s photo ID), receive flu shots (with proof of insurance), get Montgomery County Veterans’ Photo ID Discount cards (with discharge papers — a DD214 or DD256) and dispose of unwanted or expired medications onsite.
Last year’s event was a tremendous success. Check out the brief video to get an idea of what you can expect: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfhZ8JlRANo
The 2019 Senior Fair is shaping up to be just as fun- and information-packed. Don’t forget to circle Aug. 29 on your calendar and forward this letter to family or friends who may be interested and able to attend.
