“Our annual Shelton Senior Fair is a great opportunity for seniors to access information, health screenings and resources and to hear directly from the service providers in our community,” said Sen. Kelly. “I want to thank all the organizations and service providers who made this event such a big success this year. The fair strives to make it easier for seniors and their family members to access the care and information they need to make informed decisions and to better use community and state resources. We first held this event in 2013 and every year since we have seen it grow and become an even more effective and helpful community resource.”

“Our community does a great job every year to help us put together a health and wellness fair for our seniors,” said Rep. Perillo. “The local and state organizations that attended offer tons of resources that can help seniors. I encourage those that couldn’t attend to keep a lookout for our event next year.”

“It was another successful Health and Wellness Fair that we couldn’t do without the help of all the local and state organizations that participate yearly,” said Rep. McGorty. “It’s important that seniors know about the many services and help that can get if they need it. As always please feel free to reach out to us with questions or concerns.”
