Brooklyn - Friday, June 26, Assemblywoman Joan L. Millman sponsored her annual Senior Fair at St. Francis College attended by over 200 senior citizens. The free event was a one-stop opportunity to meet with representatives from over 40 non-profit organizations and federal, state and local government agencies that serve senior citizens. Hosted by St. Francis College, the senior fair featured a variety of activities, including a Tai Chi class, hearing and blood pressure tests, legal advice from experts, calisthenics exercises with the Dodge YMCA and a service provided by the New York State Comptroller's Office of Unclaimed Funds to check for unclaimed funds.
"I thank St. Francis College and all our local volunteers for helping to make this event a success," said Millman. "Knowledgeable representatives were able to answer questions and provide information about the variety of services available specifically for seniors. Year after year, I sponsor this event because I know how valuable it is to senior citizens and those who care for them."
