Martin Causer News Release
“It was good to see the many people that come back year after year, but I was also especially pleased to hear from several folks that this was their first trip to the expo,” Causer said. “I believe this is a great service to our older residents, as well as their families, and the fact that the events in Roulette and Bradford are growing every year confirms that.”
Among the most popular features of the expo are health screenings, such as blood pressure and carotid artery checks. Flu and pneumonia shots were also available.
Seniors also had access to information from a wide variety of vendors, including the Potter County Education Council, the PACE/PACENET program, the Potter County Sheriff’s Office, the PA Association of Retired State Employees, the state office of Attorney General, Charles Cole Memorial Hospital, Hamot Medical Center, Great Lakes Home Health Care, Sweden Valley Manner and more.
The McKean County SPCA was on hand with a few of its dogs and cats that are in need of permanent homes. A pair of senior Chihuahuas that shelter staff was trying to adopt out together generated a lot of interest, and at least one person was planning to submit an application to adopt them both.
Door prizes were awarded, and the event closed with Causer and his staff serving a lunch of hotdogs, chili, macaroni salad and cookies to all the expo attendees.
“People are very appreciative of the convenient access to information the expo provides. We will definitely be back next year,” Causer said.
