State Senators Craig Wilcox (R-McHenry) and Donald DeWitte (R-St. Charles) are hosting a free Senior Health Fair on Friday, September 16 from 9:00-11:00 a.m. at:
McHenry County College
8900 U.S. Route 14
Crystal Lake IL
“We will have close to 50 organizations and agencies that improve the lives of seniors all under one roof, so I invite seniors, their families, and their caregivers to attend,” said Sen. Wilcox. “Admission is free and refreshments will be served.”
Flu shots and free health screenings will be available, and those who attend can learn about alternative ways to lead a happier and healthier lifestyle.
“The weather is changing, so it’s time for vulnerable populations to get their flu shot,” added Sen. DeWitte. “This annual fair provides a perfect opportunity for people to save money, and collect information about available resources while taking care of their health.”
