Oberlander to host seniors expo

From staff reports

State Rep. Donna Oberlander (R-Clarion/Armstrong/Forest) will host her annual Nifty Sixty Expo on Friday, Aug. 5, at the Clarion Mall.

“The current economy has hit everyone, especially seniors, hard,” said Oberlander. “But there are a number of services and programs that are designed to help seniors, their families and caregivers better afford some of their most crucial needs. This Expo is designed to bring dozens of them under one roof.”

From 10 a.m. to noon, seniors can interact with exhibitors from a variety of organizations, agencies and businesses. Special topics include health care, insurance, nutrition and exercise, financial planning, government savings, hunting and fishing, and personal safety.

Attendees can ask questions about eligibility for both nonprofit and government programs and learn more about types of services that may benefit them.

In addition to exhibitors, door prizes will be awarded and arrangements for a complimentary lunch are planned. There is no cost to attend.
