  • DINGMAN TWP. - Reps. Mike Peifer (R-Monroe/Pike/Wayne) and Rosemary M. Brown (R-Monroe/Pike) invite area senior citizens and their families to a Senior Citizens Expo on Thursday, Sept. 4.
    The free event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Dingman Township Fire Hall, 680 Log Tavern Road, near Milford (off Route 739).
    “Many programs and services are available to senior citizens to help them stay healthy, continue to live in their own homes and plan for the future,” Peifer said. “The expo is designed to bring information about those programs and services together in one place to make it easier for senior citizens, their loved ones and their caregivers to assess the options available and make good decisions.”
    Brown added, “In addition to helpful information, we also have several vendors who will offer health screenings, such as blood pressure, hearing tests, pre-diabetes testing, memory testing and more. I encourage area senior citizens to take advantage of the opportunities available at the expo.”
    State, county and local vendors will be on hand to distribute information and answer questions.  Information about health care, insurance, nutrition and exercise, fire safety, financial planning, fraud protection, government services, hunting/fishing and personal safety will be available. Health screenings will also be offered, and door prizes will be awarded.
    Pike County Transportation services will offer free transportation to and from the expo for Pike County residents only. Anyone planning to use the service must be registered with the agency in advance of the expo. Please call 570-296-3408 or 1-866-681-4947 for an application or visit www.pikepa.org for a downloadable application and brochure (click on “offices” at the top of the web page and then “transportation” in the drop-down menu). Registered users must then reserve their space for travel to the expo no later than Aug. 25. Senior citizens who have not used Pike County Transportation services before should allow a week for processing of their application.
