(Listen) “Derby, Woodbridge, Ansonia, Naugatuck…a big community event!”

October 19, 2018

ANSONIA — A Valley tradition for more than three decades, aimed at helping area senior citizens make the most of their golden years, will returned to Warsaw Park. State Sen. George Logan will act hosted the annual Senior Health and Wellness Fair today at Warsaw Park, 119 Pulaski Highway. The fair drew hundreds of seniors who took advantage of numerous free services geared toward their health and well-being. Logan, a Republican whose 17th District includes Ansonia, Beacon Falls, Bethany, Derby, Hamden, Naugatuck and Woodbridge, said he’s honored to carry on the longtime Valley tradition. “This free event is now an established tradition for Valley seniors,” Logan said. “It started more than 30 years ago by former state Senator Gary Hale. My predecessor, former state Senator Joe Crisco, continued the tradition to make this event better and better. I then picked up the baton because it’s a great way to help Valley seniors get their flu shots, get free health screenings and get key information about health services in our region. This year’s senior fair, featured more than 50 vendors to arm seniors with information and screenings to help them live their best lives. Vendors on hand will included the Naugatuck Valley Health District, administering flu shots; Griffin Hospital, offering colon screenings; the state Office of Healthcare Advocate, who will discuss identify theft and how to protect oneself from it; Connecticut Society for Respiratory Care, offering lung function tests; My Eye Doc, offering vision screenings; TEAM Inc., providing information on volunteer care-giving services and its popular Meals on Wheels program; and Yale-New Haven Hospital. A popular highlight of the senior fair will be a free lunch for all who attend.
