A special thanks to the staff at the Shelton Senior Center for providing these reliable resources and I look forward to seeing neighboring municipalities mimic their example, similarly, expanding these services throughout Connecticut,” Rep. Perillo said.

“The annual Shelton Senior Health Fair is a great way for community members to meet with the Senior Center team and discuss ways to keep themselves and their families well. I appreciate their efforts and wish this great group well for another successful event,” Rep. McGorty said.
