Free flu shots, health screenings and information for senior citizens and veterans will be available when state Sen. Jim Brewster presents his annual Senior Wellness and Safety Expo at the Palisades Ballroom, Downtown.

The event from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. is open to all Mon-Yough area residents.

“The senior expo is an excellent opportunity for seniors from my district to access services and receive assistance,” Brewster said.  “We have had great success in offering help for seniors.”

In addition to health screenings, Brewster said, the state Department of Military and Veterans Affairs Mobile Outreach Unit will also be on-site to aid veterans and their families.

The Palisades is located at 100 Fifth Ave. next to the McKees Point Marina. Parking is available on the street or in the adjoining marina lot.
