I look forward to visiting with those that are able to attend and would like to thank all of the great community partners that help make these events possible,” Rep. Windhorst said.
“I am proud to co-sponsor this free senior citizen health fair along with my colleagues,” Rep. Jacobs said. “Senior citizens who attend can have their blood pressure checked, pick up useful information from healthcare and elder care providers, check for unclaimed property that the state may be holding for them, and enjoy coffee, donuts and fruit free of charge.” said Rep. Jacobs.
