August 25, 2014 - For the second year in a row, State Rep. Ryan Bizzarro, D-3rd District hosted his annual Senior Fair. It was held at the Tom Ridge Environmental Center. 

The event featured health and wellness screenings, flu shots, and information about various state and federal programs. 

There were also resources available for veterans. 

It is only the second year for this fair, and based on attendance, it looks as though it may become a staple considering how many people showed up: a little shy of 1600 people attended. 

Bizzarro said it is very important to offer this kind of fair to the Erie community. 

"The third district is heavily populated with senior citizens so I thought it was important to continue this tradition to expand the services offered to our constituents and bring in local vendors in the process," said Bizzarro.
