I will be holding my senior expo on Thursday, April 18th, at 10 a.m. at the South Philadelphia High School. All senior citizens of the first senatorial district are invited to attend.
As always, we’ll have free health screenings, refreshments and a light lunch. Representatives will be available from local and state government agencies as well as public and private service providers to discuss their programs and services.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
