Taylor to Hold Senior Expo on Oct. 14
HARRISBURG -- Rep. John Taylor (R-Philadelphia) will hold his annual Senior Expo on Friday, Oct. 14, 10 a.m. to noon, at the Cohocksink Recreation Center, Cedar and Cambria streets.
The expo is a free, one-stop information fair for senior citizens and their families, which will provide access to information on a wide range of topics. This year, door prizes will be awarded throughout the expo.
“This is one of the highlights of the year,” Taylor said. “It gives people a chance to meet with state and local government officials, as well as local businesses and other nonprofits that have information that will benefit seniors. I also will be on hand to answer any questions residents may have pertaining to state government.”
Among those scheduled to appear are the Philadelphia Police Department, PGW, PECO, Philadelphia Water Department, insurance companies, local podiatrists, chiropractors, senior help agencies, medical equipment companies, hospitals, and city and state agencies.
Blood pressure and cholesterol tests will be given, and massages will be available. Transportation will also be available throughout the district at locations to be announced.
Bus service will be available for those attending the expo; however, there will be only one pick-up at each location. The bus will leave the Cohocksink Recreation Center at 11:30 a.m. to drop seniors off at pick-up locations.
The pick-up sites include:
• Mayfair Recreation Center, 2901 Princeton Ave., at 9 a.m.
• Taylor’s Bridesburg office, 4725 Richmond St., at 9:20 a.m.
• Our Lady of Port Richmond, E. Allegheny Ave. & E. Thompson St., at 9:40 a.m.
• St. Anne’s Senior Center, 2608 E. Cumberland St., at 10 a.m.
For more information, call one of Taylor’s local offices at 215-425-0901, 215-708-3139 or 215-744-2600.
